This film is not currently scheduled to screen at New Park.

Our Education Department is offering a full Study Day, highlighting and adding further historic detail to the recent powerful films ‘Suffragette’ and ‘Make More Noise’.

Six different speakers from the world of Academia, Performing Arts and the Media will present four different sessions, each adding to our knowledge of this struggle for equality and basic human rights for women.

Their talks will also celebrate the energy, special gifts and determination of inspirational women from all ages and countries who have made their mark in the struggle for the rights of the individual.

There will be ample time to meet and talk to the speakers as well as a panel discussion and question and answer session at the end of the day.
