Having been part of the “Women’s Studies” course at Bangor University, I developed a serious interest in the part that women have played in history and their achievements, which led to my becoming involved with the AMC/WAW.  I feel the achievements and work carried out by women have been largely ignored and, as well as researching our lost history , there is a need to record the more recent past, including the lives of “ordinary” women, as well as more famous ones.  Having been part of the “Women’s Studies” course at Bangor University, I developed a serious interest in the part that women have played in history and their achievements, which led to my becoming involved with the AMC/WAW.  I feel the achievements and work carried out by women have been largely ignored and, as well as researching our lost history , there is a need to record the more recent past, including the lives of “ordinary” women, as well as more famous ones.
