‘The Campaign for "Votes for Women" and the English Radical Tradition’ with Di Drummond and LCVS


Unfortunately, due to the current climate, the University has reluctantly reached the view that the event with Di Drummond taking place on Monday 15 June 2020 should be postponed. The University is very sorry to find itself in this position but hope you understand the decision we have had to take.

We look forward to welcoming you to campus when organisers have been able to re-schedule a new date.


Join us on campus as we explore English radicalism within the 'suffragette' and 'suffragist' movements with Di Drummond.

What’s happening?

While the ‘suffragettes’ members of organisations such as the Women's Social and Political Union, were renowned for their militancy, the suffragists, those who campaigned for votes for women by permitted constitutional means, are usually not. Yet both wings of the women's campaign between 1866 and 1914, drew on the long tradition of English radicalism. This event explores not just how those demanding the parliamentary vote for women employed this radical tradition, but how they redefined and extended this, framing it as feminism, as they did so.
