First of the Feathers
21 November, 2018, 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
It is 1918 and the fight for female suffrage has been partly won. A woman reflects on her own role, campaigning for votes for women, while handing out white feathers to young men on Folkestone Leas during the First World War. This immersive dramatization will explore the possible motivation behind women’s political action between 1914 and 1918, and the impact this had on a generation of men. Suffrage campaigners often disagreed on strategy and policy, and their political views ranged from liberal pacificism to enthusiasm for eugenic selection. School participants will take opposite sides in these highly contentious debates, as the suffragette demands their support, and want to know why some of them are not in uniform.
