Women’s Suffrage 100: Freedom & Fight in Bath
February 13, 2018 - January 1, 2019
What would the 18th century founder of the Bluestocking Society talk to a 20th century Bath suffragette about? What role did women play in saving and restoring the city of Bath? To mark the centenary of women getting the vote and being able to stand for parliament we present a new performance in a salon at No.1 Royal Crescent where Elizabeth Monatagu and Mary Blathwayt discuss the politics and protest of their day. Experience their discussions and then explore the more recent history of women and protest through the story of the campaigning women of Bath Preservation Trust.
