Most of the women we learn about in history fall into the category of Queen and Suffragette. We are taught that some women ruled, most had children and then eventually got the vote. up until recently, this is the narrative that history has presented to us, but our tours are here to show you there is more to uncover.
Concentrating on the men in history is half the story.
Women actively changed and affected history, not just as queens, and suffragettes, but nurses, politicians, writers, factory workers, prostitutes, teachers, mathematicians… the list is endless.
Our world today is built upon the actions of these women and we hope our walking tours will help to tell their stories.
We have two main tours ‘The Women of Westminster’ and ‘The Women of the East End’ which both focus on a range of women throughout history, from all types of backgrounds and classes and including women in nursing, education, royalty, campaigners and reformers as well as much more.
