Women's History Month 2018

This March, join us to celebrate the women who made history.

Women played important roles in Greenwich's past; from Catharine Dowman, the suffragette who saved Cutty Sark, and the female 'computers' at the Royal Observatory, to Emma Hamilton, Nelson's influential mistress, and one of the most iconic images of female leadership, Elizabeth I, who was born at the site of the Queen's House.
