Celebrating women in Hastings

Saturday 23 June was a glorious summer day. Anyone walking over the West Hill that morning might have been taken aback at the sight of Edwardian suffragettes, complete with placards, making their way towards Warrior Square Gardens. But it was no dream: these suffragettes were just a few of more than 300 local women of all ages, who dressed as suffragists and suffragettes, wore flowered hats and white, purple and green sashes and marched along the seafront to celebrate one hundred years since women won the vote in Britain. HOT’s Zelly Restorick asked Ann Kramer of Women’s Voice to report on the event. (Photos by Jake Burnett and Rosanna.)

Turbulent Spinsters

Ann Kramer’s latest book, Turbulent Spinsters, is the story of local women who fought for the right to vote. Ann is a prolific writer and has joined forces with Kay Green at Earlyworks Press – both Hastings residents – to publish this book about local social history; a fascinating read for anyone who wants to know how local women contributed to this nationwide campaign and what happened to them on their journey. HOT’s Zelly Restorick asks Ann about Turbulent Spinsters and her passion for writing and research.
