Dr Mary Murdoch: Suffragist and Social Reformer
Dr Murdoch was a Scottish medical doctor who settled in Hull in 1896 and galvanised the suffrage campaign in Hull and East Yorkshire, as part of the national movement for women to be granted the right to vote in parliamentary elections. This talk by Cecile Oxaal explores her background, the suffrage campaign in Hull and East Yorkshire, during which the Pankhursts visited the City, and Dr Murdoch’s championing of other social reforms for women, children and the poor.
