Wednesday 27 March 2019 | 2pm - 3.15pm 

Women writers played a vital role in the campaign for women’s suffrage, forming such organisations as the Women Writers’ Suffrage League to promote the Cause. How did women writers use their pens after women’s (partial) suffrage was won in 1918? What priorities and interests defined their work as writers, journalists and critics in the years leading up to their eventual winning of the vote on the same terms as men in 1928?

This talk identifies the modern magazine Time and Tide, founded in 1920 by women who had been active in the suffrage movement, as one of the most significant developments for women’s writing and feminism in the interwar years. Discussing the origins, founders and aims of this magazine, the talk will explore the political and aesthetic agendas of the many women writers who gravitated towards its pages and whose works are richly represented in the collections of Bromley House.

Catherine Clay is Senior Lecturer in English at Nottingham Trent University, and has published widely on British women’s writing and journalism between the two world wars. Her new monograph, Time and Tide: The Feminist and Cultural Politics of a Modern Magazine, is forthcoming with Edinburgh University Press
