A Gude Cause Maks A Strong Erm

Campaigning for women to have the right to vote took place from the latter half of the 19th Century up to the start of the First World War. Orcadian suffragists were part of that activism. Researched and scripted by Fiona Grahame, the hand painted animation by Martin Laird references the world of 20th Century art. The Orcadian Woman's Suffrage Society had connections to the artist Stanley Cursiter, who designed their banner. The narration by Orcadian Kim Foden is upbeat and enthusiastic. The original score by James Watson sets the tempo for the animation.
