Gude Cause campaign anniversary procession

posted 28 Sep 2009, 03:35 by myEdinburgh Admin
The Gude Cause campaign is organising a 100-year anniversary procession in Edinburgh on Saturday 10th October.

GUDE CAUSE was formed to mark the 100th anniversary of the Women’s Suffrage Movement Procession along Princes Street in 1909. The culmination of this celebration will be a re-enactment of this march on 10th October 2009. However we hope that this will be the climax of a series of events in different parts of Scotland, not only to remember that event, but also to mark what has changed in the past century to improve women’s position in society and to draw attention to what still needs to be done.
