A POP-UP exhibition celebrating prominent women from the district’s past is touring the area.

The display, being staged as part of the Pioneering Bradford Lasses initiative, includes more than a dozen framed photos.

A permanent exhibition has been created at City Hall in Bradford.

But the ‘mobile’ version has now taken to the road, for a year-long tour taking in schools and community venues.

Locations will include Keighley Market, between September 17 and October 11.

And there are plans for the exhibition to visit the town’s Airedale Shopping Centre.

Some of the photographs are from the collection of Keighley Local Studies Library.

The Bradford Pioneering Lasses venture will also see a street named after a prominent female figure from the past, Lillian Armitage, who was jailed during the fight to secure women’s suffrage.

Councillor Sarah Ferriby, Bradford Council’s portfolio holder for better health, better lives, said: “I work in City Hall most days and while there are rightly many pictures of the old industrialists and alderman who helped shape our district, these are by and large, male figures.

“This exhibition offers the chance to redress the balance and promote more of our district’s pioneering ‘lasses’. I look forward to seeing more of the women from our past in my visits to City Hall and indeed throughout the district.”
