Overreaction or Censorship in the House of Commons?

Overreaction or Censorship in the House of Commons?

When the house of commons requested an interview with editor for Mail Online Sunday and Press Lobby it might have indicated potential press censorship or sensitivity around gender equality in government offices. However, Angela Reyner remains unresolved!

My Mother

My Mother is an artist, but she doesn’t believe it

My mother has spent her life thinking that she is not intelligent, can’t do anything and has to rely on other people to sort out major issues. She believed this because when she grew up, she was repeatedly told this by those who were there to support her. Teachers, parents and employers. They were not doing anything wrong, as it was a standard theory when she grew up. She had an education and wanted to go on to college but was told that she had to go and get a job and help support the family. It was the belief that once she married, she would be at home and looking after children, so she didn’t need an education.

My mother’s experience is that you never want to play Trivial Pursuit with her as she will always will. She is one of the most intelligent women I have ever met. She travelled across the world with three young children constantly due to my father’s job, and she is one of the most creative people I know. The photo next to this narrative is one of the first quilts she made.

Why Women’s History?

The Women’s Oral History project started as an exhibition I created for Women in the First World War. However, as time went on, it became apparent that there isn’t much written about the history of everyday women and what they did or did daily.  As a result, I have embarked on this project to record, recognise, and acknowledge women’s history.


This website is helping to promote my passion to celebrate women, and recording and recognise women’s contributions to our society. We are not against men, and we are not saying that the history of men is not as important. Most recorded history is gender-specific and class orientated (in the UK).  We are saying that women’s history in their everyday lives is not recognised or registered.  I fear that if we don’t record this history, it will get lost, and we will never know what our grandmothers, great grandmothers, aunts, mothers, sisters and daughters have done.

If you or your ancestors would like to take part or have an incredible story about one of your female relatives, please record their history here.  Together, we can keep them alive. Together we can learn from their experiences, and together we remember that we have a solid history to be proud of.
