Breaking Barriers: The Militant Struggle for Women's Votes

About the Project

‘Breaking Barriers’ is an archival research project centred around the lives and stories of working-class figures from the Suffragette Movement.

This project reflects on the suffragette movement from a new angle, amplifying the voices of overlooked figures such as the working-class and ethnic minorities.


The output of the project has been presented in three ways:

  1. An Interactive online exhibition
  2. Social Media Account
  3. Methodological essay
