Unlocked - hidden stories

The montage of photographs cover a hundred years of Birmingham women. They are a seemingly disparate group of women but many of them are inter-linked. See photographs of some of the women at different times in their lives, some are from the same family.

The diverse, seemingly random, collection reflects the history of the women in Birmingham that Gudrun wanted to portray. It is a snapshot of random and occasionally linked memories and stories from women in Birmingham.

The memories featured in this project covered a myriad of different topics, perspectives and time periods. To add some focus it looks at specific themes which featured strongly in the oral history interviews:

  • Creativity
  • Independence
  • Relationships
  • Aspiration
  • Action
  • Diversity
  • Equality
  • Challenge
