Pit Girls Exhibition Opens at Merthyr Tydfil

Dawn Bowden and Hilary Barry at the opening of “Pit Girls – Forgotten Women”

It was a pleasure to meet Dawn Bowden, Welsh Assembly Member for Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney, at the opening of the “Pit Girls – Forgotten Women” exhibition at Cyfarthfa Castle Museum on 8 March 2020.

You can learn more about the paintings and the background to the exhibition here. I’ve just finished updating the page to include audio recordings of the women’s testimonies to the 1842 Parliamentary commission.
