Event description

Description

Everyone’s heard of Emmeline Pankhurst, her daughters Christabel and Sylvia, and how they moved down to London. But youngest daughter Adela stayed north, becoming Women’s Social and Political Union organizer for Yorkshire, basing herself in Sheffield. Pioneer suffragist Dr Helen Wilson distanced herself from Adela’s confrontations, preferring dignified campaigning like the great 1913 Pilgrimage which passed through Sheffield.

Which tactics were more effective: WSPU militancy or suffragist tactics? What really won women the vote in 1918?

Join Dr Jill Liddington, Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Leeds for this fascinating insight into the campaign for votes for women in Sheffield.
