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 had an exhibition ‘100 Women Changemakers’ at York Castle Museum during 2022, and have produced a walking trail and educational resources for schools and libraries across York.
