This new book edited by Diana Wilkins, and launched to mark Equal Pay Day, tells the stories of 100 inspiring Lewes women who have made a difference to our community. They include women who successfully campaigned to change the way we vote, and women who succeeded in science, business and the arts.
The book also highlights the hopes of today’s generation. In 2019, a hundred girls from local schools were invited by mayor Janet Baah to speak directly about their concerns and aspirations. We hear about the changes the rising generation want to see over the coming decade.
You can order the book via the Contact page of the vote100lewes website, (£8.50 inc p&p, 88 pages A5 perfect bound). The book will also be on sale at Lewes Tourist Office when open and at Lewes Football Club shop on match days.
