How Women (also)
Built The world

Kate Mosse is an international bestselling author with sales of more than six million copies in 42 languages History is full of Inventors and politicians, military leaders and scientists, philosophers and composers, thinkers, and mystics, but where were the woman?

Kate Mosse OBE, is set to embark on her first ever theatre tour throughout 2023, titled ‘Warrior Queens & Quiet Revolutionaries’ 101 Women Who Changed the World.

Fancy a great night out in the theatre?  Why not join Kate Mosse in her first-ever one-woman show celebrating amazing women, and dazzling history, and even get a sneak early preview of Kate’s latest novel? Audiences can expect a fabulous theatrical event – part detective story, part love letter to history – packed with fun facts and did-you-knows.  For the curious and young at heart, Warrior Queens & Quiet Revolutionaries: How Women (Also) Built the World will surprise, entertain, and challenge as Kate brings to the stage the stories of some of the most inspiring, extraordinary, and trail-blazing women throughout history.

With toe-tapping music, video, and a few mystery objects – from a 1920s football to a 19th sheep – Kate will both share the story of how she tracked down her long-forgotten relative, novelist Lily Watson (in whose literary footsteps she is walking) and, at the same time, ask how history is made and who gets to make it. You’ll meet the Mothers of Invention and Pirate Queens, the unsung heroines of medicine and science, to those who reached for the stars or took up arms to fight for what they believed in. Featuring a joyous cast of characters – from the first named author in history to the 19th-century woman who discovered global warming – this is an evening for everyone, friends and family, parents, and teenagers.  Together, let’s raise the roof and put women back into the history books where they belong.

‘My hope is that Warrior Queens & Quiet Revolutionaries will inspire as I have been inspired. It’s a celebration of the importance of history, and about how, without knowing where we come from – truthfully and entirely – we cannot know who we are.’

Some reviews for her award-winning books…

The author has combined an ingenious adventure story with a wonderfully detailed account of the historical background of the Languedoc ... the result is entirely compelling and full of incidental pleasures.

THE TIMES - Christina Koning

‘Sepulchre is compulsive, fantastic, historical yarn. Mosse's skills lie in the precise nature of her storytelling'


Mosse's gift for historical fiction are considerable... Mosse does what good popular historical novelists do best - make the past enticingly otherworldly, while also claiming it as our own
