The early-20th-century women’s suffrage campaign was the most visual of all those conducted by contemporary pressure groups. This illustrated talk will discuss the wide range of art and artefacts - posters, postcards, cartoons, banners, china, and jewellery – created by artists sympathetic to the suffrage cause and reveal something of their creators, many of whose lives have hitherto been un-regarded.

Elizabeth Crawford is the author of, among other books, The Women’s Suffrage Movement: a reference guide and Art and Suffrage: a biographical dictionary of suffrage artists.

This special talk celebrates the Library's exhibition of suffragette posters that mark 100 years since some women got the vote. Join us from 17.30 for the opportunity to explore the exhibition and other suffrage materials over a glass of wine. Talk starts at 18.30.
