Jill Liddington on writing suffragette: Lavena Saltonstall
Friday 9 July, Hebden Bridge Library, 7.30pm
Lavena Saltonstall, fustian tailoress from Hebden Bridge, is the most celebrated of all local suffragettes.

This evening, Jill Liddington, author of Rebel Girls, discusses Lavena’s own writing and the Votes for Women campaigns which took her first to Halifax, then down to London, then into Holloway.
