Inspiring women: the legacy of the First World War in South Gloucestershire
We have been awarded funding by the Heritage Lottery Fund for the project: Inspiring Women: The Legacy of the First World War in South Gloucestershire. In 1918, during the last year of the First World War, the Representation of the People Act allowed some women to vote for the first time. This project will explore and share stories about South Gloucestershire’s women to celebrate their achievements today and over the last 100 years.
The story of women’s achievements in South Gloucestershire include the role women have played in the development of industry and STEM, culture, sport, local politics, public service and social justice. We aim to inspire women from all walks of life, promoting an understanding of the legacy and value of women’s contribution over the last 100 years and how this has influenced our lives today.
