Nominate Women of Whitby

Whitby Museum is seeking nominations of Whitby women for inclusion in our 2024 exhibition featuring the ‘Women of Whitby’

From Abbess Hilda to Beth Mead and others such as Elizabeth Botham, Dora Walker and Barbara Benson-Smith MBE and many more besides, the museum is looking to celebrate the great Women of Whitby past and present. Whitby’s history includes many inspirational women. Who do you think should be included in the exhibition and why? They could be famous, infamous, influential or an un-sung hero. Everyone will be considered but obviously we will not be able to include them all.

Please send your nominations to by 1st May 2023.
