This year The Women’s Hall heritage project will explore the amazing story of the East London Federation of the Suffragettes through two major exhibitions, a series of events, and a photography project. 

We're recruiting volunteers for a wide range of roles, and there are lots of other ways to get involved too. It's a chance to learn new skills, have fun, and help bring an exciting idea to life.

This drop-in event is an opportunity to find out more about the project and how to take part, about Sylvia Pankhurst, Norah Smyth and the ELFS, and about the partners behind the project. Just come along on the day to find out more!

Here's the Facebook event page

About the East End Suffragettes

The East London Federation of the Suffragettes were a radical group who split from the WSPU in 1914 and fought for working women’s rights throughout the First World War. The Women’s Hall at 400 Old Ford Road in Bow was their headquarters from 1914-1924, a women’s social centre, and the home of their leader, Sylvia Pankhurst and her friend and fellow suffragettes, photographer Norah Smyth.

About us

The project partners are Four Corners, Tower Hamlets Local History Library and Archives, the East End Women's Museum and Women's History Month in east London. The project has been made possible by National Lottery players through the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund.
