Fight for the Right Film Premiere

Friday 1 November 2013
6.00 - 8.00pm
The Library of Birmingham

Fight for the Right: the Birmingham Suffragettes is a history project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund in which female pupils from two local Birmingham schools, Kings Norton Girls’ School and Waverley School, explored different methods of protest and activism used during the Birmingham suffrage campaign.

The research was then used to create a short film about the local women who played active roles during the campaign, focusing on specific incidents that took place in the city between 1909 and 1914, including an attack on the prime minister, a protest march, vandalised paintings and hunger strikes.
