Just rushing to help the dc with her homework at the end of half term. Wise feminist MNers, which wonderful women are still missing a well-deserved blue plaque (on googling it seems English Heritage filled a number of gaping holes a few years ago)?

I genuinely have no idea who has one.

Looks like Barbara Castle doesn’t have one - you can check on English Heritage website here

I dont think Dorothy Lawrence has one. She probably should.

Judith Kerr lived in London and doesn’t have one

That page just seems to be about London blue plaques, which may explain some of the omissions. I wonder if there's a list of the various similar schemes around the country?
