speakHer at Hebden Bridge Arts Festival

  • Hebden Bridge Town Hall Hangingroyd Road Hebden Bridge, England, HX7 6AH United Kingdom (map)

speakHer is a new sound sculpture celebrating the 100 year anniversary of the Representation of the People Act. Inspired by Calderdale’s own local Women's Social and Political Union and Emily Pankhurst’s rousing speech in support of the striking weavers on the wooden steps of Bridge Mill (Hebden Bridge) this unapologetic sculpture amplifies what protest means to women today in light of the Women’s Suffrage Movement and what is still to be fought for.
