Living histories project

The living histories project came out of discussions amongst the Women’s History Month committee about the importance of remembering ‘ordinary’ women’s history, and listening to and recording the history of the women in our lives.

Members of the committee started this project by talking to their mothers and grandmothers, and capturing small histories of often remarkable, but otherwise forgotten, lives.

The committee also decided Women’s History Month should record the stories of the ordinary women who have made living history through their roles in public life.
