New exhibition at PRONI - In Her Words

The Women in the Archives team will be hosting a new exhibition at the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland ( this week.

In Her Words is a unique exhibition that brings forward the voices and experiences of unseen women, written by them in their own words, found in diaries and letters held by PRONI.

The exhibition will launch this Thursday with talks by curator Lynsey Gillespie and Bronagh McAtasney, the woman behind the twitter @NrnIrnGirl1981, about the importance of diary writing and women’s own history.
