Vote with your feet – Investigating the Women’s 20th   century Shoe Collection

Venue: York Castle Museum, Kirk room

Tuesday 22nd January 2019,   2-3pm

Learn about   the fascinating world of historic shoes with York Castle Museum’s Helen   Thornton. Helen will guide you through the development of 20th   century Western women’s shoe styles, and what shoes can tell us about the changing   roles of women, especially in times of social and political upheaval. Get up   close with some examples from the shoe collection, and discover more about   the person who wore them.

This session   will last one hour and include a talk about shoes as well as an opportunity   to view and handle objects at the end.
