Talking the Good Fight

Tomorrow I head to Portsmouth, England to attend the 27th Annual Women’s History Network Conference. 2018 is the centenary of the granting of the Parliamentary vote to some categories of women in Britain. I’ll be giving a paper called “Women Cannot Fight, Therefore Women Cannot Vote: Staging the Suffragette Bodyguard,” describing the development of The Good Fight. The keynote speakers for the conference, June Purvis and Elizabeth Crawford, wrote two of the books I relied on heavily for the play. I feel a little bit like a fangirl.
