JESSIE BOUCHERETT
LINCOLNSHIRE’S FIRST CAMPAIGNER FOR WOMEN’S RIGHTS

Exhibition 23 July to 7 August 2016
At St Thomas Church, North Willingham
The Lincolnshire branch of the Fawcett Society have prepared an exhibition to commemorate the significant role played by local woman, Jessie Boucherett, in 1866.

Jessie Boucherett was born in North Willingham, and maintained links with the village, the nearby town of Market Rasen and the county, throughout her life. She is buried with other members of her family in St Thomas’s churchyard. The exhibition will cover Jessie’s life and work in various causes. Jessie continued to support the campaign for the vote, to ensure women were treated fairly in legislation and also to expand their employment opportunities and to provide practical training and other assistance to women from all parts of society.
