Suffragettes in trousers: Male support for women’s suffrage in Britain

April 26, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Free, book ahead

The campaign for the vote in Britain conjures up powerful images of women’s struggles against an exclusively male political establishment. And yet, it is important to also recognise that a significant number of men were similarly convinced of the arguments in favour of women’s suffrage. In this talk, Claire Eustance, Senior Lecturer in History at the University of Greenwich, will share the stories of some of the men who went to great lengths to support the campaign.

Book ahead.
