Mill Girls and Militants
Date: Saturday 22 September
Location: Winckley Square Gardens
Over 100 years ago, just a stone’s throw from the genesis of the women’s suffrage movement in Manchester, mill-girls, pit brow workers, weavers and laundresses of Lancashire were joining the fight for women’s suffrage. Some rallied support in village halls and demonstrated at town halls, others went to London, to join marches and demonstrations.
Mill Girls and Militants by Ludus Dance uncovers and celebrates the lives of working women from Burnley, Preston and Lancaster, who joined the suffrage movement.
