Visible in Stone: The Story of Women through Buildings 1850 to 1950

10am – 4.30pm
£12, £10 concessions

The Women’s Library, in collaboration with English Heritage and the TUC Library collections has developed the first online resource to explore women’s roles in historic
buildings over a century of huge change. The design of buildings, how and why they were built or acquired, and the way they were used sheds new light on this period of women’s history.

Come and hear from a distinguished panel of speakers on how buildings, construction and monuments hold a hidden history of the many women who had the tenacity and
courage to construct their vision for our future.

Speakers include: Lynne Walker, Institute of Historical Research, University of London; Cheryl Law, researcher; Kathryn Hay and Emily Gee, English Heritage; Claire Wright,
Director Wright and Wright Architects, Christine Wall, Department of Architecture, University of Westminster; Chris Coates, TUC Library Collections, London Metropolitan
University and Sumita Sinha, Faculty of Architecture and Spatial Design, London Metropolitan University.
