Description

The Woman Question

2018 marks the centenary of some women gaining the right to vote in parliamentary elections for the first time. Our walk from Goodge Street to Marchmont Street will introduce you to a few of the pioneering women and men who played their parts in advancing this and other causes and who lent their voices to great debates.

This free walk is part of the Camden Vox programme http://www.lovecamden.org/camdenvox


and will be led by Camden guides Amanda McKerracher and Jo Wilkinson . Walk with us and meet among others, a mother and daughter whose remarkable lives gave us two of the most famous pieces of writing of the 18th and 19th centuries, advocates and activists both for and against women’s suffrage and a woman born into slavery who overcame appalling suffering to live by her own rules. There will be medical trail blazers, writers, philanthropists, an artist, the first black woman to sit in the Cabinet of the United Kingdom, not forgetting the one woman who isn’t there. We will delve into these inspiring lives and will also touch upon the significant ideas and debates that were part of the “Woman Question” that has cast its shadow across the years.

The walk will start at Goodge Street underground station and will end in Marchmont Street, near Russell Square Station, lasting about 1.5 hours.
