Votes for Women materialToday 25 February a new series starts on BBC2 called Suffragettes, For Ever! The Story of Women and Power. It’s a 3-part series looking at the beginnings of the suffragette movement fighting for women’s rights to vote going right up to the battles of the twentieth century for equality.

To chart the history Amanda Vickery looks at women’s legal rights from the eighteenth century before the suffragettes began. You can catch clips of episode 1 on the BBC Two Suffragettes For Ever! The Story of Women and Power Episode 1 page.

Our Access to Humanities and Social Science students have just finished studying the suffragette movement.

It includes ebooks, TV recordings, DVDs and websites Or you can take a look at what we hold on women and equality.
