AGM and Lecture followed by a Spring Lunch
Votes for Women: Art, Suffragettes and Female Politicians

Caroline Shenton
Thursday 26 April 2018

To mark the centenary of women first getting the vote, this 2018 lecture will explore the story of the suffragettes through portrayals in art and their own artistic productions, and will look at how contemporary artists choose to portray female politicians in our own time and the controversies surrounding these depictions.
