Suffrage Procession

The West of England and South Wales Women's History Network has been based in the Faculty of Creative Industries, Arts and Education at UWE . It was set up in 1993 by a group of women academics who wanted to encourage research and stimulate interest in women's history and gender history in the south west of Britain. The more recent incorporation of "South Wales" into the title of the Network reflects the increasing involvement of members from that part of the region. We hold study days (usually on a Saturday) in different venues including Exeter University and Glamorgan University. These are a forum for staff, graduate students and outside speakers to present their research in a friendly informal atmosphere. Our annual conference rotates between institutions.
