The East End women’s museum seeks to record, research, share and celebrate the stories of East London women past and present.

It exists because for far too long women have been confined to the margins of history.

For instance:

  • Just 2.7% of UK public statues feature historical women who weren't royalty (source).
  • There is just one statue of a named black woman in the entire country (source).
  • Just 13% of English Heritage blue plaques in London honour women (source).
  • According to an English Heritage survey, 40% of people thought that women had less of an impact on history than men (source).
