What is Her Salisbury Story?

Her Salisbury Story is a celebration of the women of Salisbury past and present. We will be finding out about the contributions of a diverse group of women who have lived in Salisbury in the past as well as discovering the ‘hidden heroes’ of today.

Who is responsible for making it happen?

The lead organisation is Soroptimist International of Salisbury, the local Club of a global women’s organisation which seeks to make the world a better place for women and girls.

What activities will be happening?

There will be two main strands of activity culminating in an event in October 2021. The first strand involves seeking out and researching historic women and the second is identifying and interviewing current women.

What are the intended outcomes of the project? 

Our website will hold all the information we have collected as a resource for the community including schools etc. We will include recorded extracts from the interviews with contemporary women.

We will put together a Her Salisbury Story walking trail around the city which will be available online and in hard copy.

We will hold an event to celebrate the women of Salisbury and to increase awareness of the resource we have created.

How will the project be funded?

We have received for a grant from the Heritage Fund and will also be looking at sources of additional funding.
