‘SUFFRAGETTE’ – if you are planning to see the film why not follow up by following the footsteps of the REAL EVENTS story on Rachel’s popular tours which salute the work of those women who campaigned and suffered in the cause of women’s suffrage. Plan a few hours with your friends and colleagues and book your private tour of ‘Wonderful Women of Westminster‘ or the ‘Battling Belles of Bow’ and hear the stories of Emmeline Pankhurst and her daughters Christabel and Sylvia and their supporters including the Pethwick-Lawrences, Emily Davison, Mary Richardson and the working women of the East End, the moderate campaigners led by Millicent Fawcett and the men who also supported the cause.
Contact Rachel for more details and how to plan your tour.
Don’t forget you can recognise several London locations in the film including Princelet Street which features on my ‘Wonderful Women of Whitechapel’ tour and many others – here is when I spotted Carey Mulligan being filmed.
