WAW workshops

Women at Work is a Project LInk CIC project for people in Worcestershire, delivered by Salt Road. We worked with groups of people across Worcestershire and the region, who learnt about the heritage archives and created their own repeonses to them.

In 1910 Mary Macarthur led the women chain makers of Cradley Heath to victory in their fight for a minimum wage and led a strike to force employers to implement a pay rise

The archive was complied by historian Jenni Waugh, a freelance community historian, sessional lecturer in local history at the University of Worcester and social media co-ordinator for the Women’s History Network Midlands.
