Endless Endeavours - the Library's Summer exhibition

The Library’s Summer exhibition draws on its unique collections to mark the 150th anniversary of a petition to Parliament signed by 1,499 women calling for women’s suffrage.

 

The exhibition celebrates the achievements of those early suffragists and the organisation which became the Fawcett Society. Although this 1866 petition was unsuccessful, the Fawcett Society regards this moment as its foundation.

 

The exhibition is open to all until 27 August 2016.
