Wonder Women Exhibition

To celebrate 100 years since the first women in the UK won the right to vote, this exhibition explores the lives of women in Ilford, Wanstead and Woodford over the past century.

From the days of the 'mistress and servant' to the varied lives of today's diverse communities, this exhibition tells the story of local women in their own words.

Beginning with the Suffragette campaign to gain the vote and the impacts of two world wars, the displays uncover the changing pattern of work, education, family life and sisterhood.

Featuring new films about women's lives today alongside a wealth of historic objects, photographs and oral histories, this is a unique chance to meet Redbridge's very own 'Wonder Women'.

This exhibition is in partnership with Woodford County High School.

Redbridge Museum is a partner in the Snapping the Stiletto project.
