Forward Sisters!

Forward Sisters! Women in Politics is an exhibition produced in 2013 by the Record Office featuring the contribution to our communities made by local women. Some fought the injustice of slavery, others for worker’s rights and many for the franchise. There were local campaigners against domestic violence and for greater access to education. These campaigners have paved the way for a more equal society and the women who represent us in the national and international arenas.
