P33707 Susan Lawrence Mrs J Scurr and Mrs J Mackay 600

The report covers nearly 150 years of women-led activism in East London, from the Matchgirls in 1888 to Sisters Uncut in 2016. It has been compiled following extensive archive research and oral history interviews. While these stories have existed in various locations, this is the first time they have been pulled together in a concise form.

The report complements the app and exhibition, which both launched this month. It provides a more indepth look at these women, with a wider collection of stories.
