Creative reflections on suffragettes locally, nationally and internationally, examining the importance of: direct action; law breaking; the treatment of suffragettes; links with other social justice campaigns; self-defence, including the martial art jiu-jitsu; and, how the bicycle became a symbol of women’s emancipation.

2018 marks the 100-year anniversary of the Representation of the People Act, which first gave women the right to vote. The act gave some women and all men the right to vote in local and national elections. The project culminates in the production of a banner, a multimedia exhibition, street performance, women’s bike ride and an afternoon of talks in March 2019.
