A Woman's Place


20 January – 31 December 2018
Abbey House Museum

On the centenary of some women getting the vote, A Woman’s Place? looks at the struggles and progress of women in achieving equality and recognition.
The exhibition features stories and objects from strong pioneering women such as Leonora Cohen and Nicola Adams, from 1860 to the present day. Discover how everyday life has changed for women in the home, school and workplace.

We hope to inspire women and girls to believe that their ambitions and achievements are not limited by their gender.

This year's Adult Talk Series [opens as a PDF] runs alongside A Woman's Place and the centenary celebrations. All talks are listed on Leeds Inspired, and are £5 per person. Booking is required: please call 0113 3784079 or email abbey.house@leeds.gov.uk.
