Angels of the North - Notable Women of The North East £2

2018 marks 100 years since (some) women got the right to vote. It is also the year of the  ‘Great Exhibition of the North’ when we are reflecting on the North’s past successes, drawing on these for future inspiration and aiming to encourage the aspirations of our young people, girls and boys.

Angels of the North highlights women who are either from the North-East - or have strong connections to it. Some of these women are household names whereas others have significant achievements to their credit but are in danger of being forgotten. All of them are women to be proud of. Meet Joyce Quin and Moira Kilkenny, authors of Angels of the North: Notable Women of the North East
