A Bird in a Cage
With support from
Margaret Mackworth, otherwise known as Lady Rhondda, was an important women’s rights campaigner throughout the first half of the 20th century. She was instrumental in the establishment of the Newport Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU), founded one of the most influential political magazines of her day, and was imprisoned for attempting to blow up a post box in Newport for the cause of women’s suffrage.
Her work made a significant contribution to the women’s rights movement and had a lasting impact on the democratic landscape of South Wales. Over a nine-month period, young people from schools in Caerphilly and Newport creatively explored the life and work of Lady Rhondda. They participated in history, music, creative writing and animation workshops. Additional support for this project came from First Campus at the University of South Wales.
