A screening of Suffragette the movie (screening at 3pm), followed by a talk by Ann Kramer – the author of 'Turbulent Spinsters' – about the activities of the suffragette and suffragist movements in Hastings & St Leonards Film synopsis: Maud (Carey Mulligan) is a working mother drawn into the fight for women’s rights. She and her friends become foot soldiers in Mrs Pankhurst’s early feminist movement. Maud’s demands for equality result in her being fired from her job, thrown out on the streets by her husband, and banned from seeing her son. But the Suffragette sisterhood rallies round to support her and together they continue their heart-breaking and inspirational fight to be heard. Also stars, Helena Bonham-Carter, Brendan Gleeson, Ann-Marie Duff and Meryl Streep. We will be asking for an £8 donation (£5 unwaged) on the day.
