Unfortunately, most of my forthcoming events have been cancelled, though it is hoped that they can be rearranged at a later date. In the meantime, I hope all my readers stay safe and well.
“Cheap and easy railway traffic”: Suffragettes and the Railways, Women and Transport: Historical Perspectives, West of England and South Wales Women’s History Network 27th Annual Conference, 10 am to 5pm, Saturday 3 October 10 am to 3.45 pm (via Zoom)
I will be giving a talk about the importance of the rail network to the women’s suffrage campaign, with particular reference to the militant campaign, at this year’s WESWWHN Annual Conference on 3 October (via Zoom). Not only was the rail network essential to the organisation and expansion of suffrage organisations, it became the locus of sometimes violent confrontation with the government, and was ultimately a focus of extreme militancy. I will be telling the stories of some of these dramatic encounters and the women involved. Booking details to follow. For further details see the WESWWHN website.
