Women, Work and the City

Women, Work and the City

​(c) Museum of London

​Free exhibition, 10 September - January 2019

One hundred years ago women’s suffrage activists weren’t just interested in women getting the vote but in them gaining equality in all walks of life. A key focus was a woman’s right to work – believing women should have access to the same professions as men. This exhibition explores the role of women in London Guilds – from medieval times through to the 17th century – and will feature original manuscripts from the Guilds and Livery companies as well as suffrage literature.

This exhibition is inaccessible during afternoon talks.
