The women’s suffrage campaign in Britain was a particularly long and difficult struggle. It was fought by women and men in cities, towns and villages right across the country.

This talk, featuring suffrage experts Jill Liddington and Elizabeth Crawford, showcases ‘Mapping Women’s Suffrage’, a new digital project which will be launched for the suffrage centenary commemorations in 2018. The project will enable the public to discover the locations of suffrage campaigners across England in 1911.

Supplemented by photographs and biographical snapshots, this talk will illuminate some of the stories of suffrage campaigners at a momentous time in women’s history.

We run an exciting range of events and exhibitions on a wide variety of topics. For more details, visit
