We have been formally constituted as a group since 1994 and now have a membership with a geographical spread including Gloucestershire, Somerset, Wiltshire, Dorset, Devon and South Wales. The steering committee meets 4 or 5 times a year to organise activities.

As a regional group we are affiliated to the National Women’s History Network. .

Range of Activities

The range of subjects covered at our meetings has been very wide and by no means confined to regional or local history. The group is inter-disciplinary in nature, drawing local, national and international speakers from history, modern languages, drama, film, literature and art history.  We ask our speakers to make their papers accessible to their audience and not to assume prior knowledge of their subject.
