JANE ROBINSON – Suffragists Great Pilgrimage

Thursday 7th June 6.30pm – The Meakin Room  


In this centenary year of the point when some women first won the vote, we’re delighted to welcome author Jane Robinson to share her latest book, Hearts and Minds – Untold Story of the Great Pilgrimage and How Women Won the Vote

Set against the colourful background of the entire campaign for women to win the vote and drawn from diaries, letters and unpublished accounts, Jane recounts the remarkable and inspiring story of the suffragists, the hundreds of non-militant campaigners for the vote and their astonishing six-week protest march to London they called the Great Pilgrimage.
