Soldiers in Petticoats- An exhibition by Andover Embroiderers' Guild

Andover Embroiderers' Guild celebrates 20 years of stitching, a century of women's suffrage and the women who shaped our world.

In a new group project, the 'Soldiers in Petticoats' - the suffragettes - rub shoulders with writers, scientists, social reformers and the latest generation of women who are fighting to make a difference to the world.

  • Embroidered panel

It is now 100 years since women were given the vote and central to this exhibition is the continuing fight for equality and the vast contribution that women have made throughout history.
