Peterloo Now: The gaps in representation at Manchester Central Library, Manchester, 18 June 2019, from £5 - Book now

On 16 August 1819, the peaceful protesters at St Peter’s Field had gathered to call for parliamentary reform, demanding for their views and concerns to be represented in a Parliament that was run exclusively by corrupt and wealthy men. Though the protests and massacre were a pivotal moment in political history, it was a further century before universal male suffrage was achieved, and limited rights to vote for women. Using Peterloo as a jumping off point, a panel, including Professor Francesca Gains, discuss representation in politics.
