SALFORD WORKING CLASS MOVEMENT LIBRARY CELEBRATES WONDER WOMEN
 

Star date: 16th February 2013

WITCHES, OUTSIDERS AND WONDER WOMEN

Wonder Women: Radical Manchester
Working Class Movement Library
Saturday 9 March, 2pm free

International Women's Day is being celebrated in Salford with an event on 9th March themed around outsiders – from witches to asylum seekers. The day is also part of a month long series of activities to commemorate 100 years since women `rioted' at Manchester Art Gallery in the fight for the vote.

Full details here…


In April 1913, three Edwardian women went on the rampage at Manchester Art Gallery, smashing glass and upsetting gentlemen, as the campaign to win the vote moved up a few notches.

Now, 100 years later there's a month long series of events under the banner Wonder Women: Radical Manchester to commemorate the happening. In Salford, on Saturday 9th March at 2pm, there's a free afternoon of talks and discussions centred around the theme of Outsiders

Livi Michael will discuss her recent novel Malkin Child, which tells the story of the Pendle Witches Trial of 1612 from the perspective of a young child, Jennet Device. And Ruth Eversley, daughter of a refugee family, will compare her experiences to those of today's asylum seekers.

"The theme of this event will be those who are treated as `outsiders' and are often subject to demonisation and persecution by the rest of society" says Bernadette Hyland who will be chairing the discussions "We are very pleased to welcome Livi Michael and Ruth Eversley to the Library."
