About the Book
We are a community group set up in 2018 to celebrate the centenary of women winning the right to vote. Our book '100 Lewes Women: Women's Lives in Lewes Past & Present' tells the stories of notable local women who have made a difference to our community. They include women who successfully campaigned to change the way we vote, as well as women who succeeded in science, business and the arts. Coming right up-to-date, the book contains interviews with women in leadership roles today. All-in-all, they add up to our list of 100 inspiring Lewes Women. The second half of the book highlights the hopes of today’s generation. In 2019, the mayor hosted Girls Talk at Lewes Town Hall. A hundred girls from local schools were invited to speak directly about their concerns and aspirations. We hear about the changes the rising generation want to see over the coming decade.
