Join us virtually for this new online curator led workshop examining the life of Leeds Suffragette Leonora Cohen.

Using our ephemera collection, partly donated by Leonora herself, we will explore how she came to be a suffragette, her involvement with the WSPU and her continued campaigning and activities after the vote was won.

This session will include a detailed presentation followed by the chance to discuss the objects and ask our curator questions.

Be transported back to the 19th century and stroll the Victorian streets with the authentically recreated shops, pub and houses at Abbey House Museum.
