Talk Tuesday – A Step On The Ladder – Tuesday 7th May 7.30-8.30 pm
May 7, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
‘A Step On The Ladder’ is a film that commemorates the centenary of the 1918 General Election, the first in which women over 30 were allowed to vote. The drama features two young women friends, one, Emily, politically active but not quite old enough to vote, the other, Martha, married and under the thumb of her father-in-law, Albert Hopgood, with his old-fashioned views on women. Emily attempts to get Martha to realise the importance of her vote, while Mr Hopgood is dead against it and Martha’s husband sits uncomfortably between the two. Whose view will prevail? Will Martha use her precious vote? There will be an opportunity for informal discussion afterwards.
