57. The Cause: The Struggle Goes On
7pm - 8pm
The Burgage Hall
‘The Cause’ was the Victorian name for what we now call feminism and was adopted by women's movements as they fought for the vote. Tonight, Jan Long takes you on an immersive journey exploring the political and passionate turmoil of the struggle for female emancipation, illuminated by the emotionally charged poetry of those who were involved, read by Sara-Jane Arbury. As the story unfolds we pose the provocative question, ‘how would those pioneers view the position of women today?’ The answers may give us all pause to think.
