From BBC One’s The Village and David Bowie’s Suffragette City to Femen activists and Pussy Riot, the suffragette legacy is everywhere in modern culture.  As part of the Manchester Wonder Women events celebrating International Women’s Day 2014, this one day conference seeks to bring together academics, artists, politicians and activists to present and speak about how their work is affected by the suffragette legacy of feminism. 

Welcoming academic papers, feminist theory, dance, music or other, this one day conference wishes to bring together different people to reflect on the important, but often complex, legacy of the suffragettes.  Within an interdisciplinary context we wish to explore if, how and why the movement still matters in politics, academia, the arts and other aspects of modern Manchester.  Part of Wonder Women Radical Manchester.Wonder Women
