Hi Angela Regarding your response to my review - I'm delighted to hear that there is a Women's History tour of the museum and I look forward to taking it. I don't agree with your characterisation of my review as pointed, as I believe my observations were made fairly and in good faith. Perhaps if elements of the women's history were incorporated into the main tour, it would have changed my description of it as not giving due representation to the contribution of one half of the population in our people's history. Regarding your point about the 'reality' of history being safely described as male dominated - while I don't disagree, given that it reflects a patriarchal power structure, I do believe this places all the more onus on those curating it to bring to bear those elements that exist of women's role and experience, in literature, politics, and indeed domestic life and the life of family, which is equally 'real' history. My point about the tale of the 'contraceptive train' is not that it wasn't represented - I saw what it was - but that it would make an interesting part of the tour narrative.
