VOTES for WOMEN
A World Premiere of a New Original Play
More than a century ago, Mrs. Emmeline Pankhurst and her daughters, most notably Christabel, were the passionate proponents of women’s rights, founding the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU), an organisation dedicated to ‘deeds, not words’ when it came to women’s suffrage in Britain. The deeds included protest and acts of disobedience, leading to multiple arrests. Undeterred, the work continued with parallel movements in the U.S., greater Europe, and Australia –many adopting the methods of the Pankhurst women. And while the U.S. passed a 19th Constitutional amendment in 1920, the universal suffrage for all women didn’t pass in Britain until 1928 when the bill became law on 2 July 1928—barely two weeks after Emmeline died in June, 1928. The idea that “we two form a multitude” exhibits real power as “we, too, form a multitude.”
