Exploring Women's History as part of your HLF Project

Hello Online Community,

Today twitter is a-buzz with people highlighting inspiring women to celebrate Women’s History Month and International Women’s day and  I thought, what a great day for our Online Community to start talking about how heritage projects (throughout the year) can uncover and celebrate women’s history.

Here are some great projects in the East of England that are doing just that!

Norfolk Museums have been awarded a grant for their Olive Edis - Britain’s First Official Female War Photographer project.

Signals Media Arts have just completed their Essex Girls - women's history in Essex project.

I’m sure there are loads more fab examples out there and it would be great to find out more about them here.
