Event to celebrate 100 suffrage pioneers

A celebration event in Leeds this month will herald the culmination of two years of activity on the Suffrage Pioneers national project.

The event will be held in the Banqueting Hall at Leeds Civic Hall on Saturday 24 November 2018. Participants from projects across the UK will gather from 12 noon to take part in an exhibition of the 100 pioneers. There will be time to talk about the successful nominees and the local projects that have been taking place to acknowledge their achievements and help inspire a new generation of activists.

Speeches, readings, music and a special display by Suffrajitsu will begin at 2pm until 4pm and will include a roll call of the 100 pioneers. Representatives from all 100 projects are invited to attend and we would encourage the inclusion of a young person perhaps inspired by the suffrage pioneer to become more involved as a first time voter, for example, or volunteer or thinking about standing for public office.
