Dorothée Pullinger: Why was she so important for women's equality?

Press/Media: Research

Description

 

The UWS and The Devil’s Porridge Museum in Eastriggs  have joined forces for the exhibition which tells the remarkable story of the region’s trailblazing car engineer through a collection of artefacts gathered from her life-long career. 

Key components of the exhibition, including a series of banners reflecting the spirit of the Suffragette movement and early 20th Century campaigners, were the culmination of a UWS research project, led by Professor Katarzyna Kosmala from the University’s highly regarded School of Business and Creative Industries.

These will be permanently donated to the museum, while a documentary film by UWS academic, Tony Grace, will also be shown as part of the exhibition.

Professor Kosmala has been cited.
