About the Event

Were words more effective than deeds?

John Henry Lorimer painted his portrait of Dame Sarah Elizabeth Siddons  Mair in 1928. It is currently on display in the exhibition 'Reflections,  the Light and Life of John Henry Lorimer'. Dame Sarah Elizabeth Siddons Mair was an ardent campaigner for women’s rights and was the  chairperson of the Scottish Federation Society for Suffrage. In 2021,  Edinburgh Living History, our group of volunteer costumed performers,  produced a video that outlined the conflicting views of Edinburgh  residents to the campaign for “Votes for Women”. Join us for this online  stream to learn more about the Suffragist and Suffragette movement in  Edinburgh.

Free. This event will be run on the City Art Centre Facebook page. No need to book, just join us on the day.
