In March this year, a book I wrote 23 entries for was published by The Hackney Society and Hackney History...
To celebrate International Women’s Day 2021 (8th March), The Hackney Society and Hackney History launched a new publication containing 113 brief illustrated biographies of women from Hackney’s history who lived or worked, were born or buried in today’s borough. Drawn from widely differing backgrounds, none of these women is still with us but their stories cover five centuries and show us how times have changed for women and for Hackney.
Written and designed by Hackney women.
The video preview for the book can be viewed here.
To coincide with the book's release, I gave an online talk entitled 'Walking in the Footsteps of Women from Hackney's History' with co-writer Sue Doe.
You can view it via YouTube here.
