Young Women's Decades Project

Investing in Children are supporting a  group of young women as young researchers funded by Young Roots Heritage Lottery Program.

The group is made up of 12 young women from distinctive backgrounds from across County Durham who have begun their research and want to take a North East perspective. The overall aim of their project is to promote what women bring to North East communities. Ideas are emerging to develop a resource pack to empower young women (a book or an app possibly) based on the contributions women bring to the North East through Heritage and their stories.

Join the Knicker Revolution!

The theme for International Women’s Day 2018 is #pressforprogress, progress for equality for all, progress for ending violence against women, girls and other vulnerable people. Newcastle has been at the forefront of women’s radical action, from the Suffragettes plotting to break windows as they drank tea in Fenwick’s café in the 1900s, to the first Women’s Liberation conference held outside London in the 1970s, to being one of only four British cities to host a Slutwalk in 2011.
