Bristol Branch: Talk on 'The Bristol Suffragettes' by local historian and author Lucienne Boyce.

Loading Events

About the event:

In 1907 suffragette Annie Kenney brought the militants’ fight for women’s right to vote to Bristol. For the next few years the city rang with the cry “Votes for Women!”. From colourful demonstrations on the Downs and stone-throwing in the Centre, to riot on Queen’s Road and arson in the suburbs, the historian and author Lucienne Boyce tells the fascinating story of Bristol’s suffragette years.

The Zoom link will be sent to Bristol branch members during the week beginning 12th October.
