Women and Power in the Midlands
The Midlands has always been home to a wealth of inspiring characters and activity that have contributed to the progression of women’s rights. This year we'll be exploring some of the stories behind this struggle at the places we care for in the Midlands.
The Midlands has cultivated women who have suffered for their beliefs, defied gender stereotypes, spoken out against inequality, risked their reputations, and used whatever power and creativity they had at their disposal in the name of progress – some on a national stage, some in more humble positions .
As the year progresses, you’ll be able to find out about women whose lives and achievements have been marginalised in the writing of history.
