Event description

Description

This Public Talk is part of a series of events that celebrate the Centenary of the Royal Assent to the Representation of the People Act, 6th February 1918. The Act abolished all property qualifications for men and gave the vote to women over 30 who met certain property qualifications, although the UK had to wait until 1928 for full universal suffrage.

Prof Patricia Fara is a historian of science at the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of Clare College. She is also the Director of Studies in the History and Philosophy of Science, and the President of the British Society for the History of Science.

Professor Fara's public talk will focus on the pivotal roles of women scientists, during the First World War, and how their efforts contributed to the war outcome and the Votes for Women movement.
