Gallery Talks: Isabel Dacre and Annie Swynnerton, Artists and Radicals

Thursday 7 March 2013 12.30 – 1.30pm

Join our curator Rebecca Milner for a talk about two Victorian painters, suffragettes and feminists Isabel Dacre and Annie Synnerton.  They were lifelong friends and together they founded the Manchester Society of Women Artists in 1876; Dacre also served as president of the organisation. For a decade Dacre was a member of the executive committee of the Manchester National Society for Women's Suffrage.  Her portrait of feminist editor Lydia Becker is one of her best-known works.

You can also visit the display in Gallery 8 of some of the Victorian masterpieces that were attacked by the Suffragettes 100 years ago.  And have a look at fascinating archive photographs HERE

Wonder Women : Radical Manchester It’s Manchester, April 1913 and three ordinary Edwardian women turn vigilante, surprising guards at Manchester Art Gallery, smashing glass and causing a commotion in the fight for universal suffrage. 100 years later Wonder Women: Radical Manchester re-examines that shock moment.  A milestone on the way to 2018 and the centenary of the first Act of Parliament for women, it is a distinctive Manchester voice questioning the power of women today. Join in and be heard. www.creativetourist.com/wonderwomen
