Words And Women will be celebrating 100 years of women's suffrage this year through two campaigns; a poster campaign and a book promotion in collaboration with the University of East Anglia and Norfolk Libraries.
celebrating Millicent Garrett Fawcett, Miriam Pratt, Annie Reeves and Princess Sophia Duleep Singh who were women from the Eastern Region involved in suffragist and suffragette activities at the turn of the last century. Their deeds and words helped bring about the passing of the 1918 Representation of the People Act, which gave the vote to some women for the first time in Britain. The posters have been designed by Vicki Johnson with funding from Norwich City Council. Words And Women will be putting these posters up in Norwich and around the region during July. Currently the posters are on display in the following places:
Arena Hair Studio; Aviva; Biddy’s Tea Room; Book Hive; Bread Source; Brew Dog; Bridewell Museum; Cherry Leaf Cafe; Community Arts East; County Hall; Ellis Books; FLY Festival; Frank’s Bar; Head In The Clouds; Kofra; Logans Sandwich Bar; Louis Deli; Missing Kind Café; Mr Postles Apothecary; Norwich School; Open Academy; Print To The People; Pye Bakers; Robert Kett Junior School; St Stephen’s Underpass; Start-Rite; The Golden Guide (magazine); The Mischief; The Playhouse; The Workshop; Tofurei; Tourist Information; UEA; Waterstones (social media)
