Although the project has been going for nearly two years now, we are still looking for help.
We’d really like to volunteers to add the stories of the strong Essex women they’ve uncovered to Wikipedia and have discovered that some would love to do this but would like a bit of help- could you be our Wikipedia Champion?
There are still some research challenges if that’s the sort of thing you enjoy? Could you help us find out more about the Land Army in Chelmsford and identify the woman who wore some of the Land Army items that the Combined Military Services Museum have in their collection.
Brightlingsea Museum would like to celebrate local women in a browsing book for their new museum- can you help them find out more about local women such as Josephine Culling?
We have a few women ready to walk in our procession at Colchester Carnival where we’re going to be celebrating 100 years of change but we are still looking for more – along with help to create costumes and props– for example we’d really like an umbrella as modelled by Southend Suffragette Rosina Sky.
If you are short of time you can still sign up to help us spread the work via Social Media– or why not visit the exhibition now it’s at the Beecroft Art Gallery in Southend and write a blog for us about your visit?
