About this event

Hanging the Pacifist: Margaret Ashton (1856-1937), Manchester's first woman councillor.

A short introduction to the life and times of Margaret Ashton. The talk will look at Ashton's extraordinary life, her political career, her involvement in the suffrage movement and, during WW1, her work in the anti-war and pacifist movement. It will look at the story of her lost portrait, rediscovered in 2006, and rehung in the Town Hall - hence the title of this talk ... 'Hanging the Pacifist.'

Saturday 8th January 2022, at 2pm, on zoom
