The Women's Hall Exhibition

Find out all about the East London Federation of the Suffragettes - a radical group led by Sylvia Pankhurst - at 'The Women's Hall' exhibition. Tower Hamlets Local History Library has been transformed into the 1914 headquarters of the East End suffragettes, which was known as The Women’s Hall. Explore the space to find out all about the group's battles with the police, why they were kicked out of the Women’s Social and Political Union, and remarkable stories of their wartime work. There'll also be a programme of talks, creative workshops, film screenings and guided walks running alongside the exhibition. Don't miss a recreation of the suffragette wartime ‘Cost Price Restaurant’, which will be dishing out food on a 'pay-what-you-can' basis. Find out more on the East End Women's Museum website
