Women in Rugby League: Life with the Lionesses Exhibition

Women in Rugby League: Life with the Lionesses Exhibition

Women in Rugby League: Life with the Lionesses Exhibition This motivational touring exhibition showcases the women pioneers of international Rugby League: the Lionesses. Hear from the women themselves and follow their ground-breaking journey on and off the field – from fundraising for their own tour, to playing on an equal stage with their male counterparts in this year’s World Cup.

The exhibition opens at Pontefract Museum on 14th November, ahead of the World Cup final, which takes places in England on Saturday 19th November.

Many of the trail-blazing women featured in the exhibition come from or have played in the Wakefield district, including the inspirational coach, Jackie Sheldon.

Visit Pontefract Museum to discover this hidden history and celebrate how far the Lionesses have come.
