The first @Emilymatters #Periscope came from the former HQ of the suffragettes’ WSPU (Women’s Social & Political Union) in London. The WSPU, led by Emmeline Pankhurst moved to this location, on Kingsway, in 1912. See Elizabeth Crawford’s excellent post about the location for more historical background information.

Elizabeth has been very supportive of my suffragette Emily Davison play To Freedom’s Cause and helped me to more accurately represent the North East suffragettes.

Thanks to everyone who got involved in our first scope and made our first venture on this new social live streaming app such a success.

Jack from Team #Emilymatters joined me and we talked about suffragette history, what @Emilymatters is all about and why #Votingmatters.
