Suffragette research Credit: GWL

Have you heard about Australian suffragette Muriel Matters who scattered handbills from an airship with ‘Votes For Women’ emblazoned on the side? Or Catherine Taylor who burned down a stand at Ayr Racecourse? Help us develop an animated web resource highlighting the forgotten heroines who have campaigned for women across the world to have the right to vote.

The Moving Story: How Suffragettes Changed the World, Wednesday 19th and Saturday 22nd September, 1.30pm to 3.30pm, Women only

From Arisaig to Australia; from Yoker to Yongzhou, help us to bring to life 100 Scottish and international women. Make your research and your voices heard!

These research sessions are the first stage in the process. Share what you know, research other women and find out some of the amazing things they did in suffrage campaigns worldwide.

See all our Vote 100 events this Autumn here.
