Norah Smyth’s photographs reveal the little-known story of the radical East London Federation of Suffragettes (ELFS), who dissented from the main suffragette movement to fight for the rights of working women throughout the First World War.
In 2018 Four Corners brought Norah Smyth's photographs back to East London after 100 years. East End Suffragettes: The Photographs of Norah Smyth (November 2018 - February 2019) formed part of the UK’s suffrage centenary celebrations and was one of the most popular exhibitions in the organisation’s history.
At the exhibition’s closing event, we asked visitors what Norah Smyth’s photographs mean to them.
