Join us for an afternoon of talks on the artists and art of the suffrage campaign through items in the Women’s Library collection.
This seminar will show how artistic women and men, from jewellers, portrait painters, embroiderers, through to retailers of 'artistic' products, played a central role in the suffrage campaign in the UK. Papers will focus on creating goods for the suffrage market, portraiture and the militant movement, the work of the Suffrage Atelier, and the representations of force-feeding in Votes for Women. Speakers will highlight items from the Women’s Library collection in their talks, which will be on display.
The British Library of Political and Economic Science was founded in 1896, a year after the London School of Economics and Political Science. It has been based in the Lionel Robbins Building since 1978 and houses many world class collections, including The Women's Library.
