We need you to help us unearth stories from history about incredible sportswomen. Maybe your grandmother was the first woman on the board of a football club, maybe a female motorcycling renegade of the 1920’s grew up on your street, maybe you’ve come across the story of golf’s first female caddy or the first British asian sportswoman, or the first female Paralympic hero.

Working with English Heritage, local councils and sports governing bodies we will put forward proposals for as many verifiable sportswomen’s stories as we can with the ultimate aim of securing blue plaques or statues and changing the visual landscape of women in sport for the future.

Tweet us your stories, or a message of support, using @BluePlaqueRebel and the hashtag #RecogniseHer
