Anne Askew (1521-1546): That’s right, it’s time for another woman from Tudor England! Today we discuss the life of Anne Askew, a bold, outspoken woman of the English nobility whose stand on the Scriptures and support for the Reformation put her in hot water with the “powers that be.” But before we get into her story, we start out with some “worthy mentions,” lesser known English women connected to Anne who also supported the Reformation. You’ll be amazed at the diverse women who the Lord used at this critical point in English history!
