'Deeds, not words?' The Millicent Fawcett Vote 100 Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences Workshop

In the second Millicent Fawcett Workshop taking place at Newnham College, we are inviting female Year 12 students from Cambridgeshire and Peterborough to explore the tension between deeds and words in the suffrage movement, and other rights issues. Attendees will listen to talks and take part in hands-on activities across a range of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences disciplines. Lunch will be provided on the day.

Following the workshop, attendees are invited to enter an essay competition, exploring and researching the theme(s) they have found most interesting. Winning entries will be published on the Newnham College website, and attend a prize giving ceremony.
