Peace Heroines

The Peace Heroines of Northern Ireland exhibition explores the collaboration of local women working across borders, political and religious divides. The exhibition will tell the story of both individual peace heroines and collectives, such as the Derry Peace Women, the Women’s Coalition and the special dynamic between the Shankill Women’s Centre and the Falls Road Women’s Centre.

The project was initially launched in Stormont in 2022, and the exhibition will be shown at a number of locations marking the 25th Anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement in 2023.

Peace Heroines is part of the Herstory programme, which was established in 2016 to elevate the stories of women past, present and future. This new Herstory project is created in partnership with the National Museums NI, the Republic of Ireland’s Department of Foreign Affairs Reconciliation Fund, The Ireland Funds of GB and The Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.
