The exhibition is part of the Women of Cumbria project, prompted by the centenary of the first votes for women in 2018. As well as telling the stories of Keswick women, it also highlights details about the town’s history.  It will provide a fascinating insight into living and working conditions and the many achievements of the women of Keswick.
