The Women who Saved the Birds - 23rd Sep 2018

The Women who Saved the Birds Event Image

Fashion, Fury and Feminism – Women’s Fight for Change
Twelve years before the suffragette movement began grabbing headlines, a very different women’s campaign caught the public imagination. Its aim was simple: to save the birds from the cruel fashion for feathered hats.

This is the extraordinary story of the RSPB’s birth –
the subject of Tessa Boase’s gripping new social history, ‘Mrs Pankhurst’s Purple Feather’.
