A new exhibition, Snapping the Stiletto opens at Epping Forest District Museum on Saturday 12 January, featuring a pair of heels owned by Essex actor Dame Helen Mirren.
It reveals the hidden stories of women who lived in the county and explores how women’s roles and opportunities have changed since gaining the right to vote in 1918. It also aims to dispel the negative stereotype of ‘Essex girls’ and their white stilettoes, by highlighting the lives and achievements of Essex women.
