gudecause.gifGude Cause are planning to re-enact a key march for women’s suffrage. The 10 October march in Edinburgh will celebrate 100 years since Women’s Suffrage Movement Procession along Princes Street in 1909:

Join us on this special day that will deliver a history lesson on the streets of Edinburgh. The day will provide an energising focus and raise the profile of women’s activism as it demonstrates the power of women’s contribution to society, culture and all aspects of public and private life in 21st Century Scotland.

There’s a banner making group, which has its first meeting tonight at The Forest Cafe. They’re planning to recreate the banner in the image, which gives the group its name, as well as making individual banners.

Even if you can’t make the march, if you’re crafty you can contribute a square to a commemorative quilt, learn procession songs, or go to one of the other events being organised by Gude Cause.
