Well-Behaved Women Seldom Make History

Historian Laurel Ulrich‘s 1976 phrase is one of a variety featured in this London-/Derry mural celebrating the role of women both locally and world-wide. It includes images of local women banging bin lids, marching past the ‘Free Derry’ graffiti on 33 Lecky Road, and rioting; images of women striking and protesting; support for Palestine and gay rights; celebrations of femininity; and Wonder Woman. As the final image, below, shows, the tapestry of images and posters is being sewn by a women at a sewing-machine in one of Derry’s large shirt- and collar-making factories. (For some history see these Derry Journal articles: one | two.) As the panel on the left-hand side notes, “Derry women made more than shirts; they made communities”.
