Forward, forward sisters!
On March 8, 1914, there was a march in London from Bow to Trafalgar Square in support of women’s suffrage. March 8 went on to become International Women’s Day.
This year marks a century since parliament passed the 1918 Representation of the People Act allowing women to vote for the first time.
We will be celebrating 2018 International Women’s day & commemorating this important milestone in the UK’s democratic history with a talk about the battle to win Votes for Women.
This month we will be joined by Suzanne Keyte, author and an expert on the movement. So, find out the difference between a Suffragette and a Suffragist (yes, it matters!) and why the campaign went from peaceful marches to hunger strikes, smashed windows, forcible feeding and prison for hundreds of women.
This is a part of history that all women should know.
We look forward to seeing you there!
