The Liberal government demanded every household comply with its census requirements. So suffragette organisations urged women, all still voteless, to boycott. Many did.
Join author and research fellow Dr Jill Liddington for the fascinating insight into the events of Census Night 1911. Jill is co-author of One Hand Tied behind Us which quickly became a suffrage classic. Her most recent book, Rebel Girls:Their Fight For The Vote was shortlisted for the Portico Book Prize.
Vanishing for the Vote will be available for purchase on the day at the PHM shop. Dr Liddington will be signing books in the shop after her talk at approximately 4.00pm.
