Travel back to the early 20th Century and uncover forgotten history. Based on a true story, “May” has a unique take on the fight for women’s rights. Celebrate the 100 years since women gained the vote by meeting May Billinghurst, one of those who fought for it.
May Billinghurst ‘the Crippled Suffragette’ played a key role in the women’s rights movement. Imprisoned and silenced by her sexuality, Billinghurst has been widely forgotten. Today in a society where women continue to fight for their voices to be heard, Kemp returns to her story and asks – how far have we come in 100 years?
A one hour show with a 30 minute Q&A session.
