What is the Dangerous Women Project?

We’re asking: ‘what does it mean to be a dangerous woman?’ Read more about the why, how and when here.

The home of the Dangerous Women Project is the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities at the University of Edinburgh.

All views expressed in the Dangerous Women Project’s daily posts are those of the individual author.
