Busy year for Women’s Voice

2019 has been a busy year for Women’s Voice. Thanks to a grant from the Tampon Tax Fund, via Sussex Community Foundation, the group has been running a project entitled Finding Our Voices. And as this project draws to a close, Women’s Voice has received another grant, this time from Rosa, the UK Fund for Girls and Women, to run a trailblazing programme that will make it easier for migrant and refugee women to access health provision. Ann Kramer, chair of Women’s Voice, explains what’s been going on.

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.

History of peace movement in the spotlight

With conflict so often hitting the headlines, it is heartening to be reminded that over the last 100 years or so individuals, whether acting on their own or collectively, have consistently and often creatively campaigned against war and for peace. With this in mind, Ann Kramer, author of two books on conscientious objectors, went to see People Power: Fighting for Peace, an exhibition on peace campaigners at London’s Imperial War Museum.

Women Resist War

At the Quaker Meeting House on 2 May, there was an event themed around women who resisted the First World War, shining a light on those women who aren’t widely known yet, whose stories form part of the wider history of the war. John Enefer writes.
