Votes for Women!

Saturday 30th June, 2.30pm

To mark the 100th anniversary of some women gaining the right to vote nationally, the National Civil War Centre invites you to don your sashes, pin a rosette to your lapel and raise your banner to ask 'will you give votes to women?' (anyone responding 'not on your nelly' will be refused entry!). Meridith Towne, Costume Historian, will lead you on a battle march through history to discover more about the determined women who sparked 'The Cause' during the Civil Wars through to the Edwardian militants who wouldn't take no for an answer. By the end of this lively and informative talk you will be inspired to go forth with 'Deeds Not Words!'.
