Mayor of London recognition
On International Women’s Day this year, I was delighted to be part of a group of women recognised by the Mayor of London as ‘Hidden Credits’ - women who are making great contributions across the city.
This initiative is part of the Greater London Authority’s #behindeverygreatcity campaign, which marks the 100 years since women won the right to vote in the UK. As a former curator of The Women’s Library, where the story of campaigns for women’s suffrage, rights and equality in the UK is told through archives and special collections (well worth a visit!), being in some way connected to this important centenary celebration of women in the capital was particularly special to me.
I was honoured to be put forward for this by the brilliant filmmaker and activist Ellie Mackay. You can read her nomination here and browse profiles of other #hiddencredits doing awesome things across the capital. Thank you Sadiq Khan!
