The blog site is managed by Dr Claire Eustance of the University of Greenwich as part of her project: Political Identities, Citizenship & Gender: Past, Present & Future
2018 marks the centenary of the Representation of the People Act 1918, which gave all men and some women the vote for the first time.
The Greenwich100 project aims to provide a focus for activities in South East London in 2018 aimed at gender activists, feminists, young people, teachers, academics and independent researchers and aspires to use the centenary women’s suffrage in Britain to promote the social benefits of gender equality.
We are planning the following:
- A mobile exhibition charting the history of women’s achievements and contributions in the Greenwich area (launching February 2018)
- A series of workshops for primary and secondary school children (January – July 2018)
- A symposium on 8-9 June 2018 at the University of Greenwich involving gender activists, feminists, young people, teachers, academics and independent researchers
- Performances of suffrage drama
- Guided “suffrage walks” in the Greenwich/Lewisham area
