The Campaign for Women's Suffrage in the Highlands
Dr Susan Kruse
Wednesday 13th March, 7pm
A timely talk coming soon after this year's International Women's Day, Dr Susan Kruse looks at the courageous women and men who campaigned and eventually won the vote for women. Based on community research sessions held over the past few years, Susan will explore some of the issues and people involved.
Dr. Susan Kruse recently retired as the Learning and Engagement Manager at ARCH, which she co-founded in 2009 after a number of years as tutor with the Workers’ Educational Association (WEA). She has led many projects investigating Highland archaeology and heritage, and is a passionate supporter of community involvement. She is currently working on a book on the campaign for women’s suffrage in the Highlands. In 2018 Susan was awarded an MBE for services to community archaeology in the Highlands.
Tickets for this event can either be booked online, via Art Tickets, using the link below or can be bought at the Museum.
