BANNERS AND BROAD ARROWS ‘FILM LAUNCH’

In 1832 the women of the United Kingdom were excluded from the
Parliamentary franchise
After 71 years this injustice remained
In 1903 the Women’s Social and Political Union was formed
This is the story told through their own eyes …

A lecture by writer/director Nigel Shephard, who will be presenting his
work so far on the film Banners and Broad Arrows. He tells the story of

Suffragettes themselves. Please come along to demonstrate your support at
