Coffee And… Jewish Suffragettes
Speaker: Yoel Sheridan
10.30am Sunday 6 November
Prior to World War l, women around the world did not have the right to vote.
As a result, Suffragette movements emerged in the 19th century, as women understood that the right to vote was key to achieving political and legal equality.
They had to endure physical ridicule, imprisonment, and violence in their persistent struggle, until enfranchisement was finally won. Jewish women took an important part in the suffragette movement.
Who were they?
Yoel Sheridan will help to enlighten us on some of the fascinating characters involved worldwide.
Yoel was born and educated in London, England and immigrated to Israel in 1973 where he worked as a management consultant until full retirement in 2002.
He is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (FCA) and a CPA (Isr.). Accountancy has been a means of livelihood, while politics, history, economics, and writing are his enduring interests. He is the author of three books on British Jewry.
