Remember the Bow Suffragettes at Toynbee Hall

The East London Suffragette Festival has been running since the beginning of the month, culminating today in a free day-long session at Toynbee Hall with talks, discussions, poetry and storytelling sessions, and more informal stalls with arts, crafts, facepainting, refreshments and a jumble sale throughout the day.

It's all part of the celebration of 100 years since the radical East London Federation of Suffragettes was established in Bow, and its a great chance to engage with local history in east London and hear from some interesting and engaging types on the way.

  1. I am preparing lecture notes on Suffragette history as we speak, regarding Britain, Australia, New Zealand and other nations. I didn't know about Bow, but your reference will get me going in a new area of reading. Thank you.
