Indian Suffragettes - Female Identities and Transnational Networks A talk by Sumita Mukherje Dr Sumita Mukherjee looks at the activities of Indian campaigners for the female vote – in Asia, Europe, USA, Britain and other parts of the British Empire, and how they had an impact on campaigns in the Indian subcontinent. In the context of her new book, she discusses the experiences of the Indian suffragettes who travelled around the world to lobby the British parliament, attend international women’s conferences, and conduct speaking tours to gather support for Indian women. Dr Mukherjee will demonstrate the ways in which the suffrage movement was a truly global enterprise, not solely confined to Britain or America, which involved and affected women from a range of diverse backgrounds. The event will be hosted by Julie Begum.
