City of London Corporation commissions new research exploring the history of BAME women in the Square Mile

In January 2020, the City of London Corporation commissioned a new piece of research which seeks to build on the work already completed to unearth hidden histories of marginalised women, particularly those who were from BAME communities.

As part of the Celebrating City Women programme, the research will also provide some additional commentary on representation across City archives and holdings, including the London Metropolitan Archive, and the challenges connected to this field of work.

A report is due to be published in April 2020 which will contribute to our understanding of the recognition of women in the City of London’s past.
