October’s InSpire is packed with articles again which will hopefully engage you and enlighten you including news of a new Saint’s Day in October honouring the remarkable Edith Cavell (page 18), another interesting article from Stuart Cole on the ‘Moving of Easter’ and why it falls on different dates each year … so confusing! On page 26 there is an article entitled ‘When Oxford accepted women’. A century ago, on 7th October 1920, Oxford University allowed women to become full members and study for full degrees for the first time, and the first 100
women were admitted. Interesting to note that Cambridge University did not give women equal status until 1947.
We also have some lighter reads including a humourous Lockdown diary (page 24) done in July by Andrew Forsyth and a look at ‘The Language of Church Going’ on page 19.
