~ Indian Suffragettes, Female Identities and Transnational Networks ~

Free talk by Dr Sumita Mukherjee, part of The Women's Hall exhibition programme, Thursday 13 September, 6.30 — 7.30pm

Dr Sumita Mukherjee looks at the activities of Indian campaigners for the female vote in Asia, Europe, USA, Britain and other parts of the British Empire, and how they had an impact on campaigns in the Indian subcontinent.

In the context of her new book, she discusses the experiences of the Indian suffragettes who travelled around the world to lobby the British parliament, attend international women’s conferences, and conduct speaking tours to gather support for Indian women.

Dr Mukherjee will demonstrate the ways in which the suffrage movement was a truly global enterprise, not solely confined to Britain or America, that involved and affected women from a range of diverse backgrounds.

Come to hear this fascinating talk, have a bite to eat in the Pay What You Can Cafe and view The Women's Hall exhibition at the same time! https://eastendwomensmuseum.org/the-womens-hall
