Votes for women-free talk by Manchester Guided Tours guide
In the centenary year commemorating (some) UK women first gaining the vote, learn how Manchester played a major role in the fight.
This entertaining and informative illustrated talk, by Sibby of Manchester Guided Tours, covers the campaign tactics of both peaceful suffragists and militant suffragettes, and the often barbaric backlash they endured. Included is the role played by local women such as Chadderton-born Lydia Becker and the protesting Pankhursts; ‘Deeds not Words’.
