Most accounts of the suffragette movement highlight militant West End ‘ladies’, but the movement was much more diverse. This course focuses especially on the East London Federation of Suffragettes – a rebellious working-class women’s movement – and Charlotte Despard’s breakaway Women’s Freedom League. Both of these organisations pursued a wider agenda for equality. The course includes two guided walks.
