Welcome to Derby HERstory! A project led by International Women’s Day Derby in partnership with Culture Train supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The aim of the project was to uncover the history of International Women’s Day (IWD) in Derby and Derbyshire. We have visited archives, completed online research, collected interviews with women and organisations who have organised IWD and more…

Everything on this website has been researched and uncovered by women and children during our community sessions. View our timeline which covers 100 years of IWD in Derby and Derbyshire, listen to interviews with past IWD organisers (including Derby Women’s Centre, Derby City Council, Women’s Work, and Vox Feminarum) or download our city heritage trail.

We have also created a pop up exhibition for community groups and organisations. Please contact us to find out more.
