'We are a Happy Company': The Culture of Women's Movements in Wales'

Event Date March 6, 2015 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.

Location – A13, Ty Crawshay

Neil Evans (Honorary Research Fellow at the universities of Bangor and Cardiff) will deliver the 2015 Ursula Masson Memorial Lecture 'We are a Happy Company’: The Culture of Women’s Movements in Wales’.

The lecture focuses on the 1913 Welsh participation in the suffrage pilgrimage of 1913, locating that event against a background of women’s use of public space in the Late Victorian and Edwardian eras. This is used as the basis for some thoughts on the nature of participation in women’s movements in the early twentieth century.
