Premiere: Stroud’s Secret Suffragist
17 March 2019
Stroud’s Secret Suffragist tells the story of the life of Margaret Hills – a prominent suffrage campaigner who worked tirelessly for women’s right to vote alongside Millicent Fawcett. It documents the journey taken by a group of artists, actors, historians, writers and community activists to illuminate this woman’s extraordinary life and legacy.
The film reveals why Margaret should be remembered, as well as how real and present the issues she was working for are to us today: peace, justice, equality, democracy, social rights, and affordable housing. Margaret’s achievements have literally changed the landscape of Stroud, and this event brings this story to life, one year on from the commemoration of women’s suffrage.
This is the debut film by local director River DriverSharp, and composer Dean Jones will be performing live music from the score. After the film Dr Gemma Jerome, writer Jacqui Stearn and director River DriverSharp will facilitate a Q&A.
