Event description

Description

As we build towards the centenary of women being given the right to vote, hear the results of the research Anne and Michael Corry from the University of the Third Age have done about Plymouth’s role in the fight for women’s suffrage.

Starting with the petition of 1869, their talk also covers the start of militancy in 1903 and a bomb in Smeaton’s Tower!

In addition they will cover some of the famous names who opposed and supported votes for women and explain the real difference between the Suffragists and the Suffragettes.

This event is part of Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery's 'Museum On Tour' programme.

£2 per person. Advance booking advised.

Pay on the day available.
