International Women’s Day: Christiana Herringham and the suffrage movement

Event Space

Herringham dedicated over 20 years of her life to improving women’s rights. She worked alongside her friend Millicent Fawcett in the NUWSS’ fight for women’s suffrage. She also campaigned as a member of the WSPU, the Women’s Freedom League, and the Artists’ Suffrage League. This talk explores the ways in which Herringham’s roles as artist and suffragist were intertwined and how she used her networks in one to support the other.

Admission free but booking is essential.
