Ladies Knight, April 2022: On the Road with Jennifer Shahade

Ladies Knight April 2022

In this special episode of Ladies Knight, host WGM Jennifer Shahade invites you to join her on the road in support of her new book Chess Queens. Her travels begin with her book launch in London, where she visits the Sarah Bonnell Girls School, meets with a women’s group called the “Trouble Club”, and unites with friends at the London Chess & Bridge Shop.

She moves on to captain the US Chess girls team in an historic global simultaneous match conducted by the top female player of all time, GM Judit Polgar.

Then Jennifer takes us down to Memphis for the National High School Championship, where she hosted the US Chess girls club, along with a bevy of inspiring guests. She concludes the episode with a visit to the World Chess Hall of Fame, where she and her husband Daniel Meirom, showed two of their feminist chess art pieces in the current show, "Mind, Art, Experience."
