Celebrating women who have made a difference to the City of York.

Celebrating the women who have made a difference to the City of York.

Over the past 100 years many brave, spirited women have inspired and effected change in York but, up until now, their stories have not been told or have only been partially told.

These women have made a difference to every aspect of life in York by their work in the community, the Arts, business, education, health, law and criminal justice, politics, religion, science, sport, media and charitable organisations.

HERSTORY.YORK is a community history project that aims to make their stories known and celebrated. We are working on a booklet and educational material for schools and libraries across York.
