'Part of the terror is to take back our own listening, to use our own voice, to see our own light.'

The middle ages are seen as a bloodthirsty time of Vikings, saints and kings: a patriarchal society which oppressed and excluded women. But when we dig a little deeper into the truth, we can see that the 'dark' ages were anything but.

Oxford and BBC historian Janina Ramirez has uncovered countless influential women's names struck out of historical records, with the word FEMINA annotated beside them. As gatekeepers of the past ordered books to be burnt, artworks to be destroyed, and new versions of myths, legends and historical documents to be produced, our view of history has been manipulated.

Only now, through a careful examination of the artifacts, writings and possessions they left behind, are the influential and multifaceted lives of women emerging. Femina goes beyond the official records to uncover the true impact of women like Jadwiga, the only female king of Poland, the Viking warrior from Birka, who caused uproar when she was discovered to be female, and Hildegard of Bingen, the visionary polymath whose work was nearly lost to the Nazis.. See the medieval world with fresh eyes and discover why these remarkable women were removed from our collective memories.
