Turbulent Spinsters tells the story of women’s fight for the vote here in Hastings and St Leonards. It traces events from Barbara Bodichon’s landmark petition in 1867 and what seems to have been the first local women’s suffrage meeting in 1871, when a woman called Mrs Ronninger came here to speak about votes for women, moving on through the setting up of different local suffrage groups, activists, meetings and demonstrations and ending in 1918 when more than 8 million won the right to vote. There’s a broad overview of the national campaign but my aim was to focus on what was happening locally.
