HOSTED BY LONDON BOOK & SCREEN WEEK
As we discussed in our blog post on We March, We Unite: 100 Years of the Vote, 2018 marks 100 years since the Representation of the People Act 1918, which enabled some women over the age of 30 to vote for the first time.
In honour of this milestone, the London Book & Screen week will be hosting an evening to talk about the women’s movement then and now, and how far we’ve come in the last 100 years with none other than Dr Helen Pankhurst, author of Deeds Not Words and great-granddaughter of Emmeline Pankhurst. This will be followed by a screening of 2015 blockbuster Suffragette, for which Pankhurst was a consultant. Starring Carey Mulligan, Meryl Streep and Helena Bonham-Carter, the film tells the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement.
Date: Friday 13th April, 5.45pm - 9pm
Location: Soho House Screening Room, 76 Dean Street, London, W1D 3SQ
