Shrieking Sisters

  • Lisburn City Library 23 Linenhall Street Lisburn, BT28 1FJ Northern Ireland (map)

In the early hours August 1 1914 a group of suffragettes, led by Mrs. Lilian Metge attempted to blow up Lisburn Cathedral. What made a respectable middle class supporter of women’s rights resort to active militancy? Using a new mix of writing, original sources and related material, slides and sound effects Shrieking Sisters images characters and events around the Ulster Suffrage Movement between 1912 and 1914 and their struggle for votes for women.
