Overview

Kathy Atherton

To celebrate International Women’s Day and our termly focus of ‘inspirational women’, this talk will explore the contribution of some of the women of the Surrey Hills who worked for the vote for women between 1867 and 1928. Particularly Emmeline Pethick-Lawrence, treasurer of the ‘suffragettes’, whose Surrey home was known as the ‘country home of the WSPU’.

It will also cover other women prominent in the national campaigns as well as local events, including the bombing of Lloyd George’s Surrey home.

Popular returning speaker Kathy Atherton is a successful author and historian and currently Chairman of Dorking Museum. She has written many books around the topic of the suffragettes.

Women's day

Please note: To assist with social distancing measures, this face to face talk will have a reduced capacity of 50 attendees. This is set at 70% of full capacity to ensure safety for our users. We will endeavour to increase this number to full capacity in due course.

This talk can be enjoyed face to face at The Guildford Institute or online (via Zoom). Please ensure that you select the correct ticket type when making your booking.
