The ‘Women in Print’ network exists to promote research, discussion and writing into the overlooked contributions and legacies of women to print culture – whether as writers, publishers, artists and designers, art directors, teachers and through their domestic lives.

The Women in Print network has been active since 2012. The first event was held at Compton Verney in Warwickshire, and was the study day ‘Enid Marx and her Contemporaries: Women Designers and the Popularisation of Folk Arts 1920-1960’ From this event the idea of a network grew. Subsequent events have been held at MMU Special Collections, the Towner Gallery, The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic, Chetham’s Library, Oriel Wrecsam, Sheffield Museum and the House of Illustration. Limited edition tribute chapbooks created by contemporary writers, artists and historians have been available at each event. For more information about the chapbooks please see here
