Emily’s Birthday Celebrations – #VFWQuiz
#Emilymatters is a social media campaign to support and advance gender equality, particularly focusing on the importance of voting. See our #Emilymatters page to find out more about what we do.
We’ve extended the #VFWQuiz deadline for taking part until 3.00pm BST on Tuesday 11th October 2016, the day of Emily’s birthday and so there are still 2 chances to win suffragette themed prizes:
- sign up for updates, to make sure you hear first about our future creative projects.
- take part in our Votes For Women! quiz (Deadline 3.00pm BST on Tuesday 11th October).
We will announce the two winners during our #VFWChat Twitter Chat on Tuesday 11th October.
Here are the questions:
In which year did Emily Wilding Davison take up residence in Parliament on behalf of all women?
Can you name the 2 suffragettes in this photo (both of whom feature in To Freedom’s Cause)?
Women of all social classes were suffragettes. Which Princess from Kensington Palace was a leading Suffragette?
Which was the first country give women the right to vote?
In what year were all women in the UK given equal voting rights with men?
E Q U A L I T Y M A T T E R S !
We’ve come a long way since Emily Davison and her sister suffragettes fought for us, future generations, to have the right to vote, to be equal.
Tuesday 11th October – #VFWChat
We will share a selection of your messages and birthday good wishes over social media, including a special #Emilymatters collage sending out a message of hope on International Day of the Girl, #IDG2016.
- Take part in our #VFWChat Twitter Chat at 7.oopm (BST)
- We’ll be reflecting on the progress made and discuss the challenges that Emily and her sister suffragettes might be urging us all to take on today.
- You can join in by following @Emilymatters on Twitter and also searching for the hashtag #VFWChat.
- Let us know your thoughts on Emily’s legacy and what’s important to you with regards to equality and voting matters today, using #VFWChat as part of the Twitter Chat.
Like Emily Davison herself, we believe in social justice and equality worldwide, not just the right to vote. See our #Emilymatters page to find out more about what we do.
Social media is a key part of our campaign. The suffragettes embraced the modern media of their age, so had they been around today, would have been all over the Twittersphere, etc.
In addition to our online events, we are also developing #Emilymatters outreach and creative projects that include interactive performances, talks, speeches and my Emily Davison play To Freedom’s Cause, which remains at the heart of the #Emilymatters campaign.
If you’d like to be the first to hear what we’ve got planned and be in with a chance of winning a suffragette themed prize, just click on the birthday cake!
