Exploring Nursing and Suffragette HERstories: A Virtual Tour

08 Mar 2021 14:00 - 15:00



Join Janan Nuri for a guided tour of nursing and women's history for International Women's Day.

Join us this International Women's Day for a virtual tour exploring the links between nursing and the suffrage movement in London.

In this illustrated online event you'll hear how the militancy of the suffrage movement began at the doorstep of what is now the Royal College of Nursing's Headquarters in London. You'll also hear about nurses who officially recorded themselves as 'protesting nurse suffragette' and suffragist in the 1911 census, as well as discovering some of the exclusive nursing and women's clubs of Marylebone.

Please register to attend and a link will be circulated in advance with instructions on how to join the event. All tickets must be booked individually.

You can also access a version of the tour to read at home or take a self-guided walk in central London when it's safe to do so. Download the free Useeum app to your phone and search for "Royal College of Nursing".
