Our unveiling of a History Plaque to the Suffragettes and Suffragists of Birmingham at Northfield Library this month proved to be a very jolly event thanks to the staff and Friends of the Library and the very supportive Northfield community. We heard from historian Dr Nicola Gauld on the suffragette movement in Birmingham, including the burning down of the original library and we were entertained by rousing suffragette songs and moving short films. Theresa Stewart, the former, and currently only female, Leader of Birmingham City Council jointly unveiled the plaque with Nicola.
