To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Paris Commune, Naomi Clifford explores the life of Louise Michel, a prominent figure in that episode.
Louise Michel, feminist, anarchist, poet, playwright and journalist, who survived the bloody end of the 1871 Paris Commune and subsequent exile to New Caledonia, loved London and visited several times.
Who was she? And why was she invited in 1883 to give her opinion on the Lambeth Workhouse?
This event is supported by vauxhallhistory.com, the online research database.
