As she prepares to release her debut album Unbroken, the Emmy nominated musician will host a live global webcast on Thursday at 8pm.
To recognise the global event, the National Trust is celebrating Women and Power, their year-long programme commemorating the historic milestone of the centenary of the passing of the Representation of the People Act, which granted some women the right to vote in British parliamentary elections for the first time.
Women and Power events, exhibitions, on-site tours and creative commissions will take place at places with links to both sides of the suffrage movement. The Trust has also invited a number of contemporary thinkers and artists to reflect on the significance of the centenary of women’s suffrage.
A number of National Trust places across Northern Ireland have unique stories to tell about the people involved in the fight for women’s suffrage. They include:
Mount Stewart, County Down, where Edith, Lady Londonderry was an ardent suffragist and political campaigner, whose pro-suffrage behaviour caused her mother-in-law to label her ‘a young hound running riot’.
Castle Ward, County Down, where Mary Ward worked as a naturalist, astronomer, microscopist, author and artist.
Giant’s Causeway, North Coast, where local women entrepreneurs helped put the Giant’s Causeway on the map.
Florence Court, County Fermanagh, where the Cole family women shaped and influenced this special place to be what it is today.
Other International Women's Day highlights include:
Derry writer Felicity McCall will be hosting a reading of her work plus giving a talk at Derry Central Library on Foyle Street Thursday night, March 7 from 7pm.
