The East End Women’s Museum aims to…

  • Research, record, share and celebrate the stories of east London women past and present.

  • Ensure representation of all women, particularly those traditionally marginalised, including women of colour, women with disabilities, lesbian and bi women, trans women, working-class women, older women, women from migrant or itinerant communities, and women working in the sex industry.

  • Challenge gender stereotypes and gender inequality, standing up to inaccurate or missing portrayals of women with compelling stories and awesome role models.

  • Empower women and girls to tell their own stories.

  • Enable schools, community groups, researchers and others to discover and uncover women’s stories, through offering resources and support.

  • Inspire civic participation, local activism, and community action.

  • Be relevant, accessible and welcoming to all.
