Feminist Whodunnit

Hosted by the LSE Library

Online public event

This interactive Cluedo-styled event presents participants with a series of ‘clues’ about the lives of feminist writers and activists which can be pieced together to explore what inspires the art, projects and theories they produce.

Just over 100 years ago, the Women’s Social and Political Union created Suffragetto, a boardgame to raise money for their struggle to win the right to vote. This event revisits their idea and is part of a larger project to develop an event and boardgame for a schools’ audience so they can learn about 'feminist' history. Drawing on research carried out by Sarah Edwards (UCL), we’ll create a mystery using things, ideas and texts for you to identify the feminist thinker.

Bring your friends, get an inside look at a research project and help imagine a feminist boardgame!

This event is in partnership with @BeingHumanFest
