The provision of women’s education provides a unique insight into the campaign for Suffrage. Archival material from Royal Holloway and Bedford New College, including commentaries by students and staff in the form of diaries, magazines and letters, charts the reception of both Suffrage and the Suffragettes in the colleges and beyond. Loans from the Museum of London and Women’s Library, including hunger strike medals and sashes, position the College material in the wider context of the campaign for women’s rights. The exhibition culminates in an examination of what the Representation of the People Act really meant and for whom.
Please note that the exhibition space is open at the following times:
Thursday, 10am -8.30pm
Admission free, no booking necessary.
