Jess McCabe from Inside Housing has just done an exciting feature on Women’s Pioneer Housing’s upcoming Heritage Lottery History Project, Pioneering Courage: housing and the new working woman 1919-1939. This project is exploring our fascinating history, and our suffragette and suffragist founders.
We’re looking at the background behind a group of extraordinary women deciding to found the country’s first ever women’s housing association. It uncovers the link between the early feminist campaigners and those campaigning for social housing. We are still in the early stages of the project, but we’re eager for volunteers to help us delve into the history of Women’s Pioneer Housing, as we seek to discover the impact that social housing for women had on society and the fight for equality. Inside Housing will be reporting on our progress, or contact us at [email protected] to find out more.
