Film: Suffragette (2015)
  • Jill Craigie Cinema, University of Plymouth

Save event

Suffragette is the first feature film to tell the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement who risked everything in the fight for equality. Based on true events, it explores the passion and heartbreak of those who risked all they had for women’s right to vote. Suffragette is the first British film for which the Houses of Parliament opened its doors as a location.

Introduced by 

  • Dr Kayla Parker, artist film-maker and Lecturer in Media Arts at the University of Plymouth, whose research interests include feminist film practices
  • Professor Angela Smith, Professor of Modern Literature, whose AHRC-funded research on the centenary of women's votes is in partnership with the historical advisor on Suffragette

To celebrate International Women's Day 2018, the University of Plymouth’s Peninsula Arts and Plymouth Arts Centre have programmed a series of films, talks and events designed to bring women to the fore.  View the range of screenings and talks being hosted by Plymouth Arts Centre.

Revolutionary Self-invention

Delving into the psychology behind human nature, this series of installations, films and talks looks at how identity is created, shaped, communicated and challenged.

In particular, the programme looks at the sexualisation of society and identity in relation to race, gender and ethnicity and how this might influence our decision-making.
