Discover more about the role of women in London Guilds
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.
