Accordingly, in this month's instalment of the Faculty of Arts at Home series, Professor Sarah Richardson from the Department of History tells us about the Mapping Women's Suffrage project, which aims to identify, plot and record the everyday lives and locations of as many Votes for Women campaigners as possible across England at the height of the suffrage movement in 1911. In particular, Sarah introduces us to some local Coventry and Warwickshire women who made their mark in the suffrage effort.
