English Professor Jan Lermitte will talk about the ideas on women held by the novelist, poet, and playwright Dorothy L. Sayers.

Dorothy Leigh Sayers (1893-1957) was a scholar, master of languages, author of popular detective stories, essayist, playwright, lay theologian, and friend of C. S. Lewis and other Inklings of Oxford.

Her essay, “Are Women Human?” offers a witty and thought-provoking reflection on the problem of “equality” for women and men in society, a perspective which continues to resonate in current discussions of gender and identity.

Professor Jan Lermitte will talk about the ideas on women held by the novelist, poet, and playwright Dorothy L. Sayers.

All are invited to this free event.
