Our Story

History is powerful. 

What we learn about history shapes us and our understanding of the world. Stories from the past can make us rethink our present and inspire us to change it. 

This has been our mission since 2015. We've grown from a single tweet to a thriving museum, working across east London to celebrate the histories of women and girls.

We are England's only museum dedicated to the histories of women and girls - and we need your help.

It's time to balance this history books. Check out the rewards on your right and donate today. 


The good stuff: rewards

We won't lie, we love a tote. And a badge. We're also partial to a teatowel, too.

We've worked with a fantastic designer to create a range of extremely covetable Women Make History merchandise, available exclusively to our crowdfunders. 

Grab some stickers while before they're gone - or take a look at our limited art print, a perfect gift for an inspiring woman or girl in your life.


We've also developed some amazing events - including the very, very rare opportunity to take a hard-hat tour behind the scenes at our new building

Whatever you can give will make a huge difference: please, give what you can today.

What your support will achieve:

Help us open our physical museum.

We are very lucky to have a building to call our own - it's literally being built as we type. 

But without our community, it would be just that: a building. People make museums.

Your donation will fund our ongoing work with local communities across east London - collecting women's histories and providing opportunities for training, creativity and enjoyment. 

quote from Njeri Njoroge, student researcher - "The East End Women's Museum means a chance to advocate for all women by giving representation to our diverse life experiences, stories and backgrounds."

We want to open a physical museum that is there for women in east London, a place with a "happy hum" that welcomes people from all walks of life - not just a glass box.

Donate today and be part of our next chapter.
