Justice for Alice Wheeldon!

Event location: WCML

Event time: 14:00 to 15:00

Talk by Chloe Mason.

In 1917 socialist, feminist and anti-war activist, Alice Wheeldon, her daughter and husband were given long prison sentences, on flimsy evidence, for supposedly plotting to kill Prime Minister Lloyd George and Arthur Henderson, leader of the Labour Party. Chloe Mason, Alice’s great-granddaughter, will speak about the campaign to have the case recognised as a miscarriage of justice.

This talk is part of the Invisible Histories series - admission is free, with light refreshments after.
