Scores of Manchester people were killed in 1819 at the Peterloo Massacre protesting for the right to vote. Nearly a hundred years later there was nearly a riot when the Suffragettes disrupted a political meeting at the Free Trade Hall, built on the same site as Peterloo. This is the story of the turmoil that shaped the story of how the people – especially the women – won the right to vote.
