RESEARCHERS want to gather stories of protest from women in the region.

Remembering Resistance: A Century of Women’s Protest in the North of England is a new project by Lancaster University that aims to bring the history of women’s activism to life.

Dr Sarah Marsden, a lecturer in protest in a digital age, working with Dr Chris Boyko, a lecturer in design, said: “We are looking for women who have fought for political change and who are willing to tell their stories. We’re interested in all kinds of activism, so if you’ve spent time campaigning or protesting over recent decades in the North of England, we want to hear from you. We want to ensure that the memories of women activists aren’t lost and that women’s role in political protest is heard."
