International Women's Day 2010

Nottingham Women’s History Walk

Posted in 2010 03 13, Midlands East by womeninlondon on 11 March 2010

To celebrate International Women’s Day Nottingham Women’s History Group will be running a History walk around Nottingham, highlighting women’s part in our history

Meet at Nottingham Castle Gatehouse on 13th March 2010 at 1 pm for a 2 hour walk around the city.

We want the network to ‘Celebrate, promote and research the contribution of women to Nottingham’s history’. This means we want to:
* Promote the rich sources of women’s history in Nottingham
* Research the lives of women, and encourage others to do so
* Promote interest in the women who have shaped the history of Nottingham
* Ensure that women’s history is visible to the people of Nottingham
* Make the links between women’s history and other ‘invisible’ groups such as BME, LGBT, disabled and other communities

On Saturday, May 8, the group will have a talk from feminist historian Sheila Rowbotham, at 2pm, at the International Community Centre, Nottingham.
