We are delighted to have donated a free website to HERSTORY.YORK, a local volunteer group who document and celebrate the achievements of women who have helped to shape our city.
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.
Kate Hignett, Founder of HERSTORY.YORK said:
The history of York is full of fascinating tales, but far too often, it is centred on stories about men, told by men. It’s His Story. HERSTORY.YORK is a volunteer-run community project that aims to tell and celebrate the stories of 100 brave, spirited women who have inspired and effected change in York – to make ‘invisible’ women visible.”
