About the event
Run 7km through Bermondsey uncovering the incredibly badass women from its history along the way.
We'll be focusing on the events of 1911 when thousands of women from the area joined together to bring about much-needed change in this industrial part of town known as "London's larder". There aren't many statues of these women - but we'll be uncovering the remains of the places that were key to their movement on this new tour on International Women's Day 2023.
Hopefully most of the inspiring women that you discover on this tour will be new, but you may recognise some of the names of the factories involved, including Hartley's Jam, Cross & Blackwell, Pink's Jam and Peak Frearn.
