This spring The Higgins Bedford celebrates the achievements of women of Bedfordshire with a new exhibition.
It is 100 years since the Representation of the People Act allowed some women to vote for the first time. The exhibition will reflect on women in Bedfordshire’s achievements in those 100 years. From aviators to
opera singers, designers to engineers, and rugby players to Suffragettes
Bedfordshire has a long history of great women.
The exhibition will highlight the achievements of women who have achieved in the fields of Suffrage & Politics, Education, Sport, Community Power, STEM, Wartime, Business, and the Arts. Women have been nominated, researched, shortlisted and selected by an exhibition development panel made up of volunteers from the local community.
