Their Work Is Not Forgotten

About Their Work Is Not Forgotten

2018 is the centenary year of the first women receiving the right to vote. This exhibition celebrates that significant milestone by looking at the women who played such an important role in the suffrage movement. Edinburgh was the site of major protest and demonstrations in 1909 where women took to the streets to campaign for the right to vote. These events were celebrated in 2009 by the Museums and Galleries Edinburgh project A Gude Cause. Their Work Is Not Forgotten explores what has changed in that time, representing the voices of young people in Edinburgh today and how, if at all, they engage with political and social action.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Their Work Is Not Forgotten are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
