Celebrating Salisbury women past and present !

Come on in and read or listen to their inspiring stories. 

We are all about sharing the achievements of women past and present who have made a difference to our city or indeed the wider community. Meet female builders, cutlers and publicans as well as doctors, gardeners, artists and authors. Our articles about historic women have been written and researched by our volunteers while on the contemporary side volunteers have been recording interviews with inspirational women for you to listen to.
