Building a Museum for East End Women in the 21st Century

Hosted by the LSE Library

LSE Library, LIFE Workspace 2, United Kingdom


Rachel Crossley

Rachel Crossley (Museum Director) outlines the need for a Museum for East End Women and shares the story of the museum and the exciting developments for the future. Fifty years after the Women’s Liberation Movement was formed, we’ll reflect on why a museum of women’s history is so needed and the challenges for it.

Rachel Crossley is the Director of the East End Women’s Museum, an organisation which began in 2015 as a social media campaign, now with an established web presence and is working towards moving to a permanent physical home in Barking in 2020. The museum works in partnership with local communities as well as with academic partners including the University of Leeds and Birkbeck University.

The British Library of Political and Economic Science (@LSELibrary) was founded in 1896, a year after the London School of Economics and Political Science. It has been based in the Lionel Robbins Building since 1978 and houses many world class collections, including The Women's Library.
