Suffragettes, anti-racists and enemies of Empire

(2 hours)

As the seat of political power, the area of Westminster has long been a magnet for protest and campaigning, especially among those excluded from the political process – suffragettes, the unemployed, the representatives of those under colonial control.

On this walk you will find out about how campaigners have used the terrain outside of the Houses of Parliament and in surrounding streets to establish alternative democratic forums and how they adopted unusual tactics to keep the authorities on their toes.

Along the way you will find out about the outstanding contributions of a number of courageous individuals who were not prepared to accept inequalities and discrimination.

What they said about “Fighters for Equality”

“It was such an enjoyable and thought provoking walk, we all loved it. Your enthusiasm and such detailed knowledge are a wonderful combination.” (Esther M – north London)
