Every day we look to celebrate women around the world, but for International Women's Day today we held a special Cathedral tour to hear the stories of women across the ages, heard and unheard, seen and unseen, who have left their mark on the fabric and history of the cathedral.

Dean Jo said ‘It was extraordinary on this International Women’s Day to bring to life 1700 years of history of women leading and serving this Cathedral and Abbey Church, as well as all those who passed through or were sent out from this holy place. We saw images and other reminders of those history remembers, we were reminded of the thousands of others unnamed but whose contribution has been as significant, and we gave thanks for the women around us today’.
