Suffrage Stories: ‘Silk, Satin and Suffrage’ And Digital Drama’s ‘100 Banners’ Project

To commemorate the centenary of the Representation of the People Act 1918, 100 Banners are being created by communities across London to feature in various events in the capital to mark the anniversary of women first getting the vote. The brainchild of Digital Drama – you can discover more about the project here.

I acted as a historical consultant to ‘100 Banners’ and speak about suffrage banners and their makers in ‘ Silk, Satin and Suffrage’ – the film made by Digital Drama to give context to the project.

You can also discover more about the artists behind the banners and the processions in which they were carried in my new book –Art and Suffrage: a biographical dictionary of suffrage artists.
