The talks programme of the Friends of The Women’s Library recommences next Wednesday 12 January at 2.30 p.m.
We return to our theme of regional differences within the suffrage movement, with Clare Wichbold MBE speaking about her research for her recent publication HARD WORK – BUT GLORIOUS: Stories from the Herefordshire Suffrage Campaign.**
A former archaeologist, Clare Wichbold has worked in Herefordshire for over 20 years, and became interested in the women’s suffrage campaign as chairman of the Hereford Three Choirs Festival centenary celebration of votes for women in 2018. This is her first book, in which she covers all sides of the suffrage debates, and the landscape of support and opposition to the campaign.
