Event Notes

× Welcome to The Bessie Carruthers Study Club. It’s August 1919, and local Women’s Institute activist, Miss Bessie Carruthers of Kent Street in Charlottetown, has a very special guest for her weekly Study Club gathering: British musician, composer and renowned suffragette, Miss Ethel Smyth.

While this is a fictional event, the characters are based on actual women. Bessie Carruthers played an important role in persuading political leaders of the era to grant women the right to vote on PEI. Ethel Smyth has been rediscovered as an important and significant composer of the last century, as well as a formidable voice in the work of British suffragettes.
