11th July: Helen Pankhurst: The Story of Women’s Rights: How Far Have We Come?
In 1918 some women won the right to vote. 100 years later, how far have women come? How much have women’s lives changed? And where might women aim to be by 2028, the centenary of the equal franchise?
Helen Pankhurst, women’s rights activist, great-granddaughter of Emmeline Pankhurst and granddaughter of Sylvia Pankhurst, leaders of the British suffragette movement, joins us to talk about her new book Deeds Not Words: The Story of Women’s Rights, Then and Now.
