In the Shadow of Men: Discovering the Lives of the Pilgrim Mothers – When retelling the story of one of the most iconic events in early colonial American history, the women involved have almost disappeared into the shadow of men. Of the 102 passengers aboard the Mayflower during its momentous voyage of 1620, 18 were adult women. Only four would live to witness the event that has come to be known as the First Thanksgiving the following year. Until very recently we knew almost nothing about the lives of these gutsy women before that fateful voyage. Special guest Sue Allan will join us from her home in Lincolnshire to share some of her painstaking research into the background and faith of the Separatist women who set sail on the Mayflower.
