The Scottish Suffragettes in their Own Words


In stock

SKU: 7248585 Category:



  • With Hannah Speed, PhD researcher at the University of Glasgow. 
  • 2pm to 3pm at Dunoon Burgh Hall 

Following on from the Castle House Museum Suffrage Trail, join Hannah to discover how little-known autobiographies can bring us closer to the inspirational women involved in the campaign for the vote in Scotland. 

Hear about Arabella Scott, Helen Crawfurd, Flora Drummond, Lillias Mitchell and Bessie Watson in their own words. Learn what it was like to be involved in the campaign for votes for women, and what the movement meant to its participants.
