British Suffrage coverOur Access to Higher Education students are due to follow the history of the women’s suffrage movement as part of their history course. This week two interesting programmes on the women’s movement and the suffragettes were broadcast back-to-back on BBC 2.

If you missed them you can catch One Hundred Years of the Women’s Movement on BBC iPlayer. It takes you from women fighting for the right to vote right up to the recent Slut marches. Following this programme was Tales from the Old Bailey: the Suffragettes. It brings to life the trial of Emmeline Pankhurst from court papers. Again if you missed it you can catch up on BBC iPlayer.

We’ve just added the ebook edition of Paula Bartley’s ¬†Votes from Women 1860-1928 to our collection through Dawsonera. We’ve got a host of resources on the suffragettes for our students including ebooks, websites and DVDs through our library catalogue.
