We've got that #Fridayfeeling as two new female focused exhibitions open @foundlingmuseum ''Ladies of Quality & Distinction' features portraits and stories of the remarkable women whose overlooked roles in the history of the Foundling Hospital are brought to the fore, including the 21 duchesses whose pioneering actions helped establish the UK’s first children’s charity. 'Kitty Clive: The Creation Of A Female Celebrity' explores the life and career of the 18th-century actress, singer, feminist author and campaigner. Having cultivated her popular image as an actress, Clive brought her earning power and fame to play as an open supporter of actors’ rights, criticizing the challenges that female performers faced at the time. ____ #MuseumMileLDN #MuseumMile #foundlingmuseum #autumninLondon #exhibition #visitlondon #londonmuseum #100yearsofextraordinarywomen #100yearsofsuffrage #feminism #womensvote #powerfulwomen #womenofhistory
