BREAKING THE MOULD:THE SUFFRAGETTE STORY IN THE SW By Pamela Vass

Talk  |  Seated

PAMELA VASS:

Pamela was born close to London but has lived in the West Country for most of her adult life. She has an MA from Exeter University and worked in the care sector for several years before launching her own walking and themed holidays businesses. More recently she has become an author and public speaker, finding much of the inspiration for her talks and books - both fiction and non-fiction - in the landscape and people of the West Country.

TALK: On August 4th 1913, a car was spotted speeding away from a Devon mansion late at night. Moments later the alarm was raised as flames lit up the sky. The papers were filled with speculation that suffragettes were to blame. Truth or fiction? This one question opened a door to the fascinating story of the fight for the vote in the south west - not a tale of a sleepy rural backwater but of women prepared to protest at political meetings, recruit in the streets, join mass rallies in London, and suffer the agony of forced feeding in Holloway. All this ... and the biggest sleepover the region
has ever known!
