Date(s) - 17/05/2018
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
London School of Economics Library
The Women’s Library at London School of Economics holds over 500 archive collections and a significant museum collection of over 5000 objects. Most of this material dates from the late 19th century onwards. The origins of The Women’s Library can be traced back to the women’s suffrage movement and the 1866 women’s suffrage petition. This marked the beginning of the organised campaign for the vote which ended in 1928 when women achieved equal voting rights with men in the Equal Franchise Act.
The Library Gallery space is also hosting an exhibition on the Representation of the People Act of 1918. This exhibition focuses on the latter years of the campaign for women’s right to vote and the work of the constitutional suffragists, the well-known suffragettes and an off-shoot group, the Women’s Freedom League. The exhibition features key artefacts and archives from the Women’s Library collection.
