We're on a mission is to use walking tours to share the contributions of women who have been forgotten, ignored and marginalised.
You don’t need a history degree to enjoy our tours. Walking tours offer an opportunity to share knowledge and stories in an inclusive and non-judgmental context. We don’t want there to be any barriers to engaging with our content. We don’t assume any prior knowledge, use image descriptions, and use clear and non-exclusionary language.
We’re direct, respectful and kind. Whether it’s in an internal staff meeting or in a conversation with a guest, we communicate directly, but with respect and kindness. Our Safer Spaces Policy is fundamentally about treating one another with respect and ensures She Shapes History (the tours, social media, and any online or off-site events) is a safe, inclusive, and welcoming environment.
Queerness is rooted in liberation. For us, being queer is about more than gender or sexuality. It is about someone’s willingness to challenge what we understand as “normal.” It is about embracing and making space for the possibility of new, innovative, radical ways of existing. To be a queer business means to challenge the status quo. To be a queer business means to innovate.
