On the 6th of February 1918, after fifty years of campaigning, some British women were finally granted the vote. 100 years on, Culture Perth and Kinross Libraries would like to mark 100 years of suffrage by hosting a panel discussion on how far we have come in those 100 years.
The panel will consist of local authors, journalists and businesswomen and will be hosted by writer Daniel Gray, the people’s historian.
Dan will steer our panel through their discussion, offering a little historical insight into local suffragette activities and will ask the panel to reflect on how winning political citizenship has impacted on women's lives today.
This discussion will also look forward to the next 100 years and think about how far women have come and what challenges still lie ahead. A small exhibition of photos and text will support this panel discussion.
FREE but booking is required.
