22 April 2020 Entrance is free — Visit now

Salford’s excellent Working Class Movement Library is running a series of online talks. You need to head to their website for the log-in details for the live stream and you can view them afterwards on their YouTube channel.

This talk is by Ralph Darlington, Emeritus Professor of Employment Relations from the University of Salford and will highlight some of the links, often tenuous, that were made between some sections within the suffrage movement and sections of the trade union and socialist movement, and will draw conclusions about links between gender and class, and the relationship between labour, suffrage and socialist movements and its implications.

The talk is part of the Invisible Histories series.
