you Can't Beat A Woman


The Minories,
74 High Street,


A multidisciplinary exhibition recounting the story of the founding of refuges in East Anglia and East London for women suffering domestic violence.

This fascinating exhibition tells the story of the women’s refuge movement in East Anglia and the tenacious grass-roots campaigners who pioneered these vital oases in the struggle for gender equality. Researched by Dr June Freeman, a founder member of Colchester refuge, and Dr Ravi Thiara, the exhibition forms part of a Heritage Lottery project.

An accompanying workshop and talk will be held at Firstsite as part of the project.
