Call for volunteers: Women Inventors

'The A-Z of Women Inventors' will investigate the journeys of four extraordinary women from East London: Agnes 'Queen of Ices' Marshall (ice cream entrepreneur), Mary Quant (inventor of the miniskirt), Joan Ball (inventor of the first computer dating service), and Phyllis Pearsall (Inventor of the A-Z). We need your help to collect oral histories that will uncover the legacies and impact of these women's inventions.

Please contact Megan@ech.org.uk to be involved.
