Women in Print in Eighteenth-Century York

Join Dr Kaley Kramer as she uncovers the lives and careers of these fascinating York women.

York's conscious civic self-fashioning in the eighteenth century was accompanied by an expanding local print industry. Women played an important role in this, particularly Grace White, who established York's first newspaper in 1719, and Ann Ward, whose business in Coney Street lasted 30 years under her direction. The careers of these women offer a fascinating insight into eighteenth-century print culture, gender, and the politics of local news in a century that saw York re-establish itself as a centre of leisure, wealth, and culture in the North.
