This summer term at the BYU London Centre will examine British history, sociology, and literature through the lens of women social reformers that fought for women’s rights and human rights. The story of female suffrage in the U.S. actually begins in London at the World Anti-Slavery Convention in 1840, where women were excluded. Later advocates for women’s rights, such as Emmeline Pankhurst and Millicent Fawcett, championed suffrage in the UK. Reformers called for women’s access to education and employment, in addition to enfranchisement and political participation. Others pushed for social reforms in healthcare, labor laws, and sex trafficking. Drawing on the work of writers such as Mary Wollstonecraft, Jane Austen, Josephine Butler, and Virginia Woolf, we will explore the contributions of women reformers to British society from the 18th century through two World Wars to today. Our studies will take us from London to Manchester, Preston, Liverpool, Edinburgh, and York, as we consider the work of reformers advocating the abolition of slavery and for change in industrial factories, medicine, and politics. We will spend time in Northern Ireland examining “the Troubles” and the work of women to build bridges of understanding and peace. Our term will end with a visit to the beautiful Isle of Wight, as we visit Chawton House (Jane Austen’s home), and Osborne House (a favorite of Queen Victoria). Join us for summer term in London and be inspired by the contributions and examples of individuals who gave their voices to change.
