8216;Votes for Women' and Women's Work in the First World War on Wednesday 28th November 2018

The West of England and South Wales Women’s History Network celebrate the centenary of the Representation of the People Act 1918 with an exhibition and talks on the campaigns leading up to most women over 30 gaining the vote and the contribution of women in Bath and Bristol.

  • What part did local women play in suffrage campaigns?
  • What difference did women’s work during the First World War make to this achievement?

At 7.30pm talks will be given by June Hannam, Lucienne Boyce and Katherine Holden on
Women's suffrage, citizenship and the 1918 Representation of the People Act: Bath women in politics’

We will be exploring the women's suffrage campaign in Bath after 1906 and looking at the impact of war, both on the suffrage campaign and on ideas about citizenship. We will also consider the outcomes of the 1918 Act for women's politics in Bath.
