Event description

Description

Women have a long and rich history of involvement in politics, but this has often been over-looked. In the centenary year of women's voting rights in Britain, we invite you to join us for an exciting day where we will explore different histories of women's contribution to political life.

The taster day will include: a taster lecture on British women’s campaign for the vote, a taster seminar, an exhibition on the British suffrage movement, a campus tour and a session on Studying History at University.

Attendees can select a seminar from a range of specific topics:

  • Women for Young China at the Turn of the Twentieth Century

  • Women and Politics in Eighteenth-Century England

  • India's Independence Struggle and the Salt March Protests of 1930

  • Women's Radical Activism in Late Twentieth-century Britain

  • Gender and Race and the American Presidency

  • Votes for Women: The Campaign for Suffrage in Britain

The seminars will be of particular interest to students studying the making of Modern Britain, the British Empire or American history.

Students will also have an opportunity to visit the Suffrage Exhibition during the taster day. Further details regarding the exhibition can be found on the link below.
