Lucy Curtis, Project Manager of Women’s stories of Ford Dagenham.
The project has been running for around 6 months now and the recent exhibition was a way of getting everyone together who came forward to share their personal experiences during the strike.
It was a challenge to find the people involved since many were not using the internet.
Lucy said: “Untold stories are a way of celebrating local history. The women had forgotten how significant the strike was for local ladies today.”
If you missed the exhibition you can re visit the exhibition on the Queens Theatre website.
You can Listen to the full interview and some of the amazing stories on the podcast.
