1pm | Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI)
Dr Keith Monro will deliver a talk on his book Through the Eyes of Margaret Cousins: Irish and Indian Suffragette.
Margaret (Gretta) Cousins was a remarkable Irish woman who, together with her husband the Sheehy-Skeffingtons, founded the Irish Women's Franchise League in 1908. She and her husband James left Ireland in 1915 for India where Gretta continued her suffrage work, founding the All India Women's Conference in 1926 and helping to achieve votes for women in all Indian States by 1929. Gretta died in India in 1954.
Gretta was all these things, and also the great-aunt of Dr Keith Munro, who has spent over 15 years researching to bring Gretta and her husband James's story back to the life.
This event will run from 1pm to 2pm. It is a free event but booking is required.
