Welcome to Cambridge Herstory

Celebrating the Courage and Resilience of the Women of Cambridge

Happy International Women’s Day, Cambridge! Welcome to Cambridge Herstory– celebrating the contributions of women who have lived, worked and studied in Cambridge throughout the ages: from stories of women in history who changed the city for the better, and often contributed nationally, to  stories of women currently living in Cambridge who make massive contributions to improve the lives of their friends, family, neighbours, colleagues, community members and our city every single day.

Read the stories of ordinary (and extra-ordinary) women promoting positive change as makers of our history: raising awareness of the achievements, history and issues of Cambridge women.  here:
