Rise Up Women! The remarkable lives of the suffragettes

Rise Up Women! The remarkable lives of the suffragettes

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

On 6 February 1918, after 50 years of campaigning, British women were finally granted the vote. History was further made when, in 1919, Lady Nancy Astor became the first female MP in the House of Commons.

A century on, Diane Atkinson will reflect on the daring, often violent struggle women undertook to break into an exclusively male political system. Her forthcoming book, Rise Up Women!, celebrates the women that campaigned and paved the way for generations to come.

Cost: £5
