In the build-up to the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement in 2023, Herstory partnered with the National Museums NI and Department of Foreign Affairs to create the Peace Heroines education programme.

The programme features a touring exhibition with stunning new portraits of the peace heroines by the artist FRIZ, and youth workshops exploring power.

From grassroots to government levels, the exhibition captures a diversity of voices and perspectives, featuring 30 women’s stories including:

  • Monica McWilliams and Pearl Sagar
  • Linda Ervine MBE
  • Pat Hume
  • Baroness May Blood MBE
  • Hillary Clinton, and
  • Saidie Patterson.

Powerful partnerships are explored such as Peace People, NI Women’s Coalition, Women Together, and Derry Peace Women.
