From suffragette to #MeToo: Continuity and change in women’s rights

Freedom Festival and The Wilberforce Lecture Trust are honoured to welcome to Hull, Dr. Helen Pankhurst, women’s rights activist and great-granddaughter of Emmeline Pankhurst, to deliver this year’s Wilberforce Lecture.

Helen Pankhurst will lead a participatory discussion on women’s lives, reflecting on the changes in the UK since the right to a parliamentary vote first granted to some women in 1918 and discussing how far we’ve really come.

The session will be informed by findings from her new book Deeds Not Words: The Story of Women’s Rights, Then and Now.

In partnership with The Wilberforce Lecture Trust.
