Description

Join local historian Frances Bevan and Swindon Suffragette event organiser Leah Bevan-Haines for a talk about Edith New and her contribution to the campaign for Votes for Women.

Sharing photographs and newspaper articles they will give an overview of the suffrage campaign starting with the suffragists in the 1860s; through to the actions of the militant suffragettes which included Edith New, and beyond to the Equal Franchise Act in 1928.

This talk is suitable for secondary school age children at their responsible adult's discretion.
