My article on Magna Carta and Women’s Rights in the Queen’s Alumni Review

My article on Magna Carta and Women’s Rights has been published in the fall 2015 issue of the Queen’s University alumni review. The article discusses the situation of noblewomen in King John’s reign (including the queen, Isabelle of Angoul├¬me), the clauses in Magna Carta that discuss┬áinheritance rights and freedom from forced remarriage for noble widows and how Magna Carta went on to inspire suffragettes and the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
