Women in Street Names Project

Back in 2020, one of our members undertook a research project to identify women in street names, to which some of you kindly contributed, and also gave us an online talk on the subject.

Carrie de Silva has been working hard ever since and has sent us an update for anyone interested in women’s history and/or the representation of women in public spaces.

Please visit Carrie’s website to find out more and to read the first chapter of mini biographies – those women remembered for public service, whether as national or local politicians or community work.
