Talk: Images of Women in the Leeds Libraries Colle

Talk: Images of Women in the Leeds Libraries Colle


Join Sally Hughes from Leeds Central Library to discover how images of women have changed from the 1700s to the present day. 

Sally has been delving into the Library Collections to explore women's history. Her talk offers a chance to see some of the amazing Leeds Libraries collections of books, journals, photographs and playbills.

This talk is part of a programme of afternoon women's history talks linked to Abbey House Museum's 2018 exhibition A Woman's Place.

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.
