PROCESSIONS AND THE CONTRIBUTION OF THE SUFFRAGETTES
EDM #1361
Tabled 07 June 2018
2017-19 Session
That this House notes that 10 June 2018 will see tens of thousands of women, girls and those who identify as women or non-binary taking part in PROCESSIONS, a mass participation artwork taking place simultaneously in Edinburgh, Cardiff, London and Belfast to mark 100 years of some women getting the vote; recognises that PROCESSIONS is commissioned by 14-18 NOW, the UK's arts programme for the First World War centenary and produced by Artichoke; understands that banner making workshops have been taking place across these islands in preparation for the day; further notes that participants will move through city streets in bands determined by whether they choose a green, white or violet cotton wrap; further understands that the BBC will film live aerial shots of the women forming the suffragette flag in each of the four cities; and wishes the participants and organisers a wonderful, sisterly and successful day.
