International Women’s Day in Sheffield

March 8, 2015

My good friend Helen W asked me to join her on a Sheffield Boost Walk on a Sunday morning. Anyone who knows me, will tell you this is a bold ask, but also that if I was going to drag myself out of the house on a Sunday morning for anything, then probably a walk about Suffragettes in Sheffield would do it.

IMG_3277Local Historian and generally interesting woman Ann Beedham led the talk beginning at the Old Queens Head on Pond Hill and wandering the streets of the city centre describing the exciting part the city’s women have always played in campaigning for social justice improvements.

So what, I hear you say… So now we’ve moved to a new city (again), I think it’s time to add another list to this site.  Watch this space for a list celebrating the contribution women have made to Sheffield. First I’m off to twitter to crowd source the list.
