International Women’s Day with Assist

Reclaiming Hidden Teesside Women

We have been digging around in the archives and libraries since last year, a slow but most interesting process.  

We want to invite you to the Central Library in Middlesbrough, located in the cultural quarter.  It seems a fitting space for us in the Grade II listed building, we will be in the Reference Library surrounded by it’s original features as we find out about some of our local women of history.

What have we got planned….

We want to showcase these hidden women we think YOU should know about, lets shout loud about them! Their achievements have been documented a little in history as we have found them, however it has not been an easy task – why did they not get the recognition they deserved? 

We want to acknowledge the ACHIEVEMENTS not only of women of history but our successful business and professional women we have in the Tees Valley today.  

No cost to you, join the global celebratation of INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY with us, stepping back in history as we continue to look how we can bring change to the future. 

You can be a part of this in our small corner of the #IWD20 world. 


Some remarkable women from a time before that we admire, along with some exceptional women of today we want to PLANT firmly in our history today! 

We have a duty, all of us to tip the balance and have more women on plinths, more portraits of women, more wrote about in the history books. We want our daughters and granddaughters to read about and see the success of women and have Role Models – do you? 

Get involved….

Do you have an Untold Story we should know about to build on our findings and Reclaim your Resilient Teesside woman? 

We looking forward to thanking all you amazing women that have been a part of Assist through them 10 years.  There is some room to meet and greet many new faces, you can find out who we are, what we are about. Come along!
