Book Launch, Stevenage and North Herts Suffrage Stories, Knebworth House, Knebworth SG1 2AX – Postponed; Date to be Advised
Last year I was asked to write a chapter about Millicent Price, the suffrage campaigner whose biography I’m currently writing, for a forthcoming book for the Stevenage and North Herts Suffrage Stories: 100 years of votes for women project. The project is run by Stevenage Museum working with North Herts Museum, Knebworth House, the Garden City Collection and YC Hertfordshire. The project focuses on the local stories of women’s campaign for the vote.
The book will be launched at Knebworth House in 2019. Further details to follow.

Our keynote speaker is Professor Nicola Verdon, author of Rural Women Workers in 19th Century England.
