Sally Nicholls

Things Bright Girl Can Do

Hay Festival 2018, 

As we mark 100 years since the battle for women’s suffrage was won, hear from author Sally Nicholls who will be discussing her book documenting the suffrage movement from the point of view of three young women of the time. It is a great story and one that shows how far there is to go in the battle for equality. Through rallies and marches, in polite drawing-rooms, freezing prison cells and the slums of London’s East End, it tells how three courageous young women join the fight for the vote. Brave and determined, all three are challenged and changed more than they would ever have believed by the fight for freedom. As war looms, just how much are they willing to sacrifice?
