Women of Scunthorpe: Lives of Women in Scunthorpe 1850-1950

Pen and Sword Books Ltd have commissioned a series of books about women’s lives to commemorate the centenary of the Representation of the People Act (1918) which allowed over 8 million women to vote in Westminster elections for the first time.

Books have already been commissioned about Leeds, Coventry, Bradford, Manchester, Portsmouth, Nottingham and various other major cities and towns around the country and I have been asked to write a book about a town or city of my choice.

I have chosen to write about Scunthorpe.

Can you help?

I would like to include as many personal memories, stories and photos as possible, so I can bring the book to life and reflect the unique nature of women’s lives in Scunthorpe and the surrounding areas.
