Votes for Women

by | 1 June 2018 | Gainsborough, Heritage

The Friends of Gainsborough Old Hall will host a talk entitled ‘Were the Suffragettes Terrorists?’ by PDJ Howitt-Cowan on 5th June at 7.30pm at the Old Hall. Admission costs £2.50, including light refreshments. 2018 marks the anniversary of women over 30 with property, receiving the parliamentary vote. The talk shall look at the ‘journey’ made by women and whether the means used in order to campaign for the parliamentary vote justify the ends. Did the suffragettes really win the battle?
