A Vote and a Voice
We’re delighted this year to welcome as our speaker Julie Lamara from Bolton Central Library. She will show a short film and talk about the work she and other researchers did leading up to the centenary celebrations of partial women’s suffrage last year. The team discovered fascinating details of the activities of several local women – among them Florence Blinkoe, Sarah Reddish and Alice Collinge – who were involved not just in the suffrage campaign but in many other activities to further the rights of women.
