Women’s Suffrage and Me: how mapping women’s suffrage activism speaks to local communities today (Wrap up event)

14th November 2020 18:00-19:00
Talk/Webinar

About this event

Mapping Women's Suffrage is a community project mapping as many early twentieth-century British women's suffrage activists as possible on to an interactive map. This webinar is the final event in a series which has included a webinar focusing on researching the suffrage past of your family or neighbourhood and daily multi-media releases on a variety of themes. The daily releases which are still available included presentations on music and women’s suffrage; suffrage walks and digital mapping; Kent: a local case study; the 1911 census and the suffrage movement; sexual violence and women’s activism.

Webinar: Legacies of the Suffrage Movement

A final webinar will consider the legacy of the suffrage movement; its resonance for contemporary activism such as #MeToo and Black Lives Matter; and how an understanding of a community’s suffrage past might lead to re-interpretations of established local histories. Our keynote speaker for this event is the women’s activist and writer, Helen Pankhurst, the great granddaughter of Emmeline Pankhurst.
