|To produce the definitive list of Derbyshire women who have made headlines would be an impossible task, because headliners come in all shapes and forms. There are women accused of witchcraft and murder; women desperate for love, wishing to escape their mundane lives, to help humanity, and to follow their dreams. These are very human stories that we can all relate to because behind the scandal, the achievements, the accolades and the sacrifices these women share the same things that happen in all kinds of women's lives; problems at home, money troubles, infidelities, insecurities, broken marriages and secrets. Some of these names may not be familiar to you, but most are determined, innovative and remarkable Derbyshire women – the headliners of their day.
