Great-grandson Peter Barratt with sister Suffragette Ruth Pownall

Spoken Word - Historical,True-life

Age Limit:

Peter Barratt gives a stirring and passionate account of his great-grandmother's hard-fought campaign for the right to vote over 100 years ago. A shoe machinist by trade, lifelong socialist and mother of six, Alice Hawkins formed her city suffragette branch in 1907 following imprisonment in Holloway Jail. The centenary year of 2018 marked a statue of Alice in her home town of Leicester together with original suffragette memorabilia exhibited at UK Parliament; including her sash, hunger strike medal and more. Sister suffragette Ruth Pownall adds true theatre to an unmissable spoken word show.
