Rebel women: The Suffragette spirit 100 years on
Sunday 20th May
This lecture by feminist campaigner Kellie Turtle will tell the stories of the suffrage activists here in Ulster who shook up society and helped win the vote for women a century ago.
But does the spirit of these rebel women live on today and what would they make of our modern world? We’ll look at the recent resurgence of the feminist movement and ask have we achieved the vision the Suffragettes fought for or would they roll up their sleeves and smash a few (patriarchal) windows?
