Other Women we Have Recognised/Researched
The above women fall directly under the Forgotten Women of Wakefield project, but we have also helped to have recognised a number of other women from our region.
At the beginning of our project, we were thrilled to blue plaque Alice Bacon, the first female MP from the Wakefield/Leeds area.
Our researchers have also tirelessly reconstructed the great mystery surrounding another famous woman from our region, Pontefract’s Elizabeth Moxon whose cookery book is a foundation for modern cookery writing.
We are also pleased to have researched Fanny Stott, whom the Wakefield Civic Society honoured with a blue plaque in the summer of 2022.
