Layers of London


Recruiting student placements for June. Help us document Feminist history in the East End!

We have 2 amazing  Student placements up for grabs over the month of June 2018 this year with Layers of London in collaboration with Senate House Library and the creators of a Feminist History Walk for the Rights of Women, created in 1979.

Recently, a copy of a tour of the East End educating its audience on local Feminism from 1979 was re-discovered recently in Senate House Library and its creators were contacted to discuss how the booklet could be promoted due to its 40 year anniversary next year and this year being the anniversary of some women getting the right to vote. We would like to share this fascinating history through the Layers of London platform.

Want to get involved? Read the student placement brief and contact  our Public Engagement Officer by 14th May : [email protected]
