To mark 100 years since women first gained the right to vote, activist Helen Pankhurst is a late night talk at the People’s History Museum. Helen, who is the great granddaughter of the suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst, is introducing new book, Deeds Not Words: The Story of Women’s Rights – Then and Now, discussing how women’s lives have changed over the last century, as well as offering an argument for the way forward. The galleries and exhibition spaces are open late for visitors to explore, as part of the museum’s monthly Radical Lates series. The evening is one of a number of events leading up to the opening of the museum’s exhibition Represent! Voices 100 Years On, in June.
