Empowering Women in Times of Austerity
(Council Chamber corridor)

This exhibition celebrates twenty years of the Women’s Studies MA at Bangor University. “Empowering women in times of austerity” is the Welsh Government’s theme for International Women’s Day 2014.

Archival material held at Bangor University was chosen to reflect the participation of local movements and societies, which have promoted women’s rights in the past, along with the challenges and opposition they have met and overcome. Themes of suffrage, education and the war are all represented.

Find my Past [Poster]

Thanks to the Bangor Fund Benefactions Group, the Archives Department can now offer free access to Find My Past.

 This perfect resource for genealogists can be used in conjunction with our original manuscripts.

Contact the archivist for further details.
