In this month’s edition of the People’s History Museum’s series of Radical Lates, the museum is hosting a free networking event, celebrating the centenary of the first women gaining the right to vote. The evening will have a particular look at the work done by the Fawcett Society in creating national networks to help support women in politics.
As well as getting the chance to discuss these topics with the room there will also be talks from Helen Pankhurst, great granddaughter of Emmeline Pankhurst, and women’s rights activist, Sam Smethers. The event is part of People’s History Museum’s year long programme exploring the past, present and future of representation. As well as looking at the contributions of women from all walks of life in the suffrage movement. As with every Radical Late while the event is happening the whole Museum will be open for visitors, including the cafe and bar, till 8 pm.
