Dr Jill Liddington, Honorary Research Fellow, University of Leeds and author of 'Vanishing for the Vote' is joined by Professor Pat Thane and Elizabeth Crawford to explore the significance of the 1911 census.

The 1911 census provided accurate data for future welfare reform but was also an opportunity for women, all still unenfranchised, to rebel against Asquith's Liberal government by defacing or boycotting their forms. The talk is illustrated by readings from 'Vanishing for the Vote'.
