The Role of Women in Chess-an International Women’s Day Event

Jane Chelliah, the blogger at ambitiousmamas, is holding an event on the influence of female chess players in history in celebration of International Women’s Day. Chess is traditionally seen as a masculine game and the role of women has largely gone unnoticed.

Ian Grant, a Chess player and tutor for 26 years, has done research into how women have influenced the game. He will give a short biography of the history of chess, followed by an introduction of women players and their influence on the game. Ian will also talk about his current work on integrating Chess into mental health strategies.

Date: 17 March 2018 (Saturday)

Time: 2 to 4pm

Venue: 108, The Cut, Waterloo, London SE1 8LN
