In Her Words Exhibition Launch

Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI)

Thursday 11 April 2019, 12.30pm

In Her Words brings forward the voices and experiences of unseen women, written by them in their own words, found in diaries and letters held by PRONI. This exhibition provides an intimate insight into the lives of these women, allowing them to speak for themselves and tell their own story. They are not women you are likely to have heard of before, they are everyday women, living their lives in the midst of history. Their words give us a glimpse into the reality of life for women, across a century.  

The launch will include a talk from curator Lynsey Gillespie and author Bronagh McAtasney, better known as @NrnIrnGir1981, who will speak about the significance of diary writing and women’s stories.

Exhibition runs to 28 June 2019

RSVP to Lynsey.Gillespie@communities-ni.gov.uk by Tuesday 9 April, 12pm
