Celebrating Women of Bedfordshire 10th March – 23rd September 2018 Free Entry

This Spring The Higgins Bedford celebrates the achievements of women in Bedfordshire with a new exhibition. This year marks 100 years since the Representation of the People Act gave some women the right to vote for the first time. The exhibition will reflect on the achievements of women in Bedfordshire in those 100 years.

Bedfordshire has a long history of great women and this exhibition will highlight the achievements of 60 women who have achieved in the fields of Politics, Education, Sport, Community, STEM, Wartime, Business, and the Arts. Women have been nominated, researched, shortlisted, and selected by an exhibition development panel made up of volunteers from the local community.
