Open Day - find out more about women's fight for the vote

Event location: Working Class Movement Library

Date: 1st Apr 2017

Event time: 12:00 to 15:00

Special showing of items from our extensive collection relating to women's fight for the vote. Drop in between 12 and 3pm to see original material from the Library and from the People's HIstory Museum.

Some of the items have been acquired recently as part of our joint Heritage Lottery Fund project Voting for Change. There's a leaflet, Broken windows, in which Christabel Pankhurst justifies the actions taken by the 'militant suffragists' on 1 March 1912 - when they took part in a mass window-smashing demonstration.  There are a couple of novels in which women's suffrage plays a key part. Plus much more...

This is a drop in session with no need to book and a chance to get up close to these historic objects. A member of staff will be on hand with tea and discussion – neither will be compulsory.
