On Wednesday 16 February, at 2.30 pm, the next offering in the talks programme of the Friends of The Women’s Library – which may perhaps change a number of preconceptions of suffragism 1914-18 – is:
‘“Keep Your Eyes On Us Because There Is No More Napping”: The Wartime Suffrage Campaigns of the Suffragettes of the WSPU and the Independent WSPU.’
Our speaker is Alexandra Hughes-Johnson, Research Associate at the University of Oxford and a Research Portfolio Manager at the Economic and Social Research Council. Her doctorate focused on the women’s suffrage movement in Wimbledon and the political career of Rose Lamartine Yates. She is editor, with Lyndsey Jenkins, of The Politics of Women’s Suffrage: Local, National and International Perspectives (London: University of London Press, 2021).
