Through this virtual exhibition, you can learn about the significant women who have called the Trafford area home, and shine a light on their pioneering exploits.

The Trafford area may cover little more than forty square miles, but significant artists, suffragettes, authors, athletes and other female trailblazers have trodden its streets.   

Each week you can learn about a different woman, from articles researched and written by Trafford Local Studies staff and volunteers.
