SIM Ep 526 Chops 216: Blue Plaques for women

Who is to blame for a lack of Blue Plaques for women in London? In a way, it's all of us, as English Heritage rely on the public for nominations. In this Chops, Hannah chats to Anna Eavis, curatorial director at English Heritage, about attempts to celebrate and commemorate more women. Ellen Craft is one of the women being honoured with a Blue Plaque this year and so her nominator, Dr Hannah-Rose Murray from the University of Edinburgh, also joins the chat to talk about Ellen's incredible life. Hopefully it will inspire you to nominate some fantastic women of your own.
