Women's History Month 2020

This March, join us to celebrate the women who made history and are making waves today. 

Women played important roles in Greenwich's past; from Mary Lacy, the shipwright who built much of Deptford High Street, 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.
