Free Event in Aberdeen I will be talking at the Central Library in Aberdeen on 8th November. Please follow this link to book a place at this free event. All attendees will receive a free copy of the new edition of Caroline Phillips’ correspondence.
Dunfermline Talk Our first event is a talk on the Scottish Suffragettes for members of the Dunfermline Historical Society on Thursday 21st September at 7.30 pm at the Abbey Church Hall in Abbey Park Place, Dunfermline. https://dunfermlinehistsoc.org.uk/september-2017-meeting/ There were some interesting suffrage meetings held in Dunfermline, with speakers ranging from Emmeline Pankhurst of the WSPU and Chrystal Macmillan of the Edinburgh National Society for Women's Suffrage. However, Dunfermline also had its own home-grown suffragettes, such as Anna Munro and Jennie McCallum of the Women’s Freedom League, who went to prison in the fight for the fight for women. Come along and hear more.
