By 1912, militancy associated with the Suffragette movement hit its peak, with regular arson attacks, window-smashing campaigns and targeting of MPs’ houses. In retrospect, these tactics are often what the movement is famed for. But did they help or hinder the cause? Join us for this lively evening debate with Dr. Fern Riddell (BBC’s Suffragettes Forever! and Kitty Marion: Singer, Suffragette, Firestarter), Elizabeth Crawford (author, The Women’s Suffrage Movement) and Professor Krista Cowman (University of Lincoln).
