"A small town in the west of Ireland was to play a key role in the twentieth century protest movement Margaret cousins was one of the leading lights in the Irish struggle for women's equality and then came to play a similar role in India thousands of miles away these are just some of the episodes I'll be exploring in this forum from the BBC world service I'm Russian data and I'm joined by historians Dr Margaret ward from queen's university in Belfast Dr Joti us well from Jawaharlal Nehru university New Delhi and the university of Limerick and up to Emily rook capsule from the university of Pittsburgh in the USA welcome to you will apps we should start with astonishing how Margaret's will Greta she was usually known became involved in women's rights in the first place she was one of fifteen children of a mine of course official in the town of boiled she showed both academic and musical talent as a child at the age of twenty four received a music degree from the roll university of Ireland eight years later she was imprisoned for her views and actions regarding women's suffrage so Margaret tell me how did this transformation come about very open about this in her wonderful so by all groups the she was the oldest child of the sixteen children and successful world goes so she was very aware of how differently boys which treats is she compares her brother's experiences with heroin and the disappointment when the first full send that to be girls but one really important moment was when she was eight she said she was riding a donkey and she had thrown her leg across the donkey when the side saddle strap broke and got spanked with this and told it was very unladylike I'm not feeling the bumps and stayed with her parents also will move very middle class has told her mother has no money of her own father wouldn't give her an allowance but she had to bring all the household bills to him when he would go through them and criticize them sentence grumbles and complaints from her father in the humiliation of the mother also stayed with her and then as a gifted musician question moved to Dublin to beat music students and began to meet people involved in a wide range of activities she met her husband said James cousins I became a vegetarian and the sea also first but the direct inspiration to become involved in suffrage came when she went to speak to the vegetarian meeting in Manchester in England where a meeting of the National Council of women was taking place and she says in her autobiography that she'd never before heard of the suffrage movement but the experience made her aware of the injustices and grievances which were taken for granted as an actual face of my sex I was spiritually excited and stimulated well in the island Christopher's joined existing women's suffrage organisations but after a couple years she found the approach ineffectual and with a friend Hanna Sheehy Skeffington founded the more radical Irish women's franchise league in nineteen oh eight no I think at this point it would be really useful to sketch out the context in Aden's what with the women's demands and the obstacles they faced Emily sure so the Irish women's franchise league was founded a sort of at the nexus of two really important movements that were going on at the same time there is a large portion of Ireland who is interested in having some significant autonomy from the U. K. but this is by no means universal standing people are are unionists there are people who are interested in staying in the U. K. entirely there are people who are organizing around religious lines so it's it's a very complicated situation at the same time as all of this is going on there is a push for women's rights and for women's political rights specifically suffrage and so the Irish women's franchise league sort of hits at this moment where they are aligning themselves with the home rule activists that they are looking for more autonomy for Ireland but with the in that mode they're looking for autonomy for Irish women as well and they would like to see the home rule bill includes a provision for Irish women's franchise but the trouble was that some Irish politicians didn't want the women's suffrage movement to to kind of muddy the waters today that's right so the main party the Irish parliamentary party didn't want to include votes for women into the home rule bill for a couple of reasons first as you say practical reasons they felt it would be harder to pass the bill and also for ideological reasons there were many people including John Redmond the leader of the Irish parliamentary party who said that basically they were more are interested in having women's places be in private rather than in public life and so they weren't keen to have votes for women as part of the home rule bill well we don't think Margaret would settle for that and we'll find out more about that but this was a time for an Irish cultural reticence wasn't it and up in particular with the cousins settled being censored Margaret I mean we talk about some big let's rethink is they want me to marry one of the women at the time talked about as it being what she called a glorious copper age of violence because if he had six little bronze pennies you could get and since to so many plays and it was a deeply political cultural Renee songs and it was aimed at revising the nationalist spirit so you had the formation of the Gaelic league revising the Irish language you have the feminist movement you had militant trade unionism and in terms of coach you you had the Irish national theater was formed and this later became the Abbey Theatre which still exists in Ireland today which is the Irish national the it's the and you had W. B. eight eighteen known as George Russell sings who's famous playboy of the western world is one of the most famous Irish plays and James cousins himself who writes plays but in nineteen oh three eleven James cousins have three plays staged and gates had five in the Irish national CSS and Josie once the Irish women's franchise league was up and running how did correct Sir welcome gathering support for it she was very active in campaigning she would go to meetings organized public speaking and also encourage other women who were not so are spoken to come up with ideas and speak Margaret really I think revolutionary about the work sets and grasses and the franchise Lee green gates with was it was so different from the other suffrage organize Asians it wasn't such an season it wasn't just having drawing room meetings and trying to plead with politicians it was not degree not confronting them on the street quested talks about how she learned to speak in public through standing in the field at the back of the house and projecting her voice so that they actually spoke at big public me scenes in places like Phoenix park the biggest park in Dublin open only to the women had never done before and I think they challenged the whole idea of what was acceptable as a role for women in Ireland so she was petitioning position she was speaking in opening a meeting she was meeting other people other potential allies she was really mobilizing was J. well grant said Hanna Sheehy Skeffington and the other women of the Irish women's franchise league we're also in contact with the indecipherable S. and that is how the London window breaking incidents that we heard about at the beginning of the program came about but the bad treatment of women in Hollywood jail in London we're going to spend a month only strengthened her resolve as she recalled many years later in the autobiography cold we two together which was co written with a husband James or Jim I was fully convinced that such imprisonment as the supposed civilized governments were giving to women women who were thinking self sacrificing politically minded educated speaking only reforms and justice was stupid cruel and useless as a way of suppressing their agitation and was only wasting time but much water was to run under Westminster bridge before so called statesman Genji the race from nineteen ten on woods there were significant political developments regarding the future status of island Margaret tells what happened when in nineteen ten the Irish parliamentary policy which have been campaigning so limited self rule for Ireland since the eighteen seventies now held the balance of power in the British parliament in London they agreed to support what was a minority Liberal Party governments but they said only in exchange for the government supporting the home rule bill for Ireland however this wasn't as simple as that because by nineteen ten the issue of home rule had really become intertwined with the question of whether or not women in England Wales Scotland and Ireland would win the vote and one of the complications was that prime minister Asquith was anti suffrage and so was John Redmond's he was the leader of the Irish policy ends by nineteen twelve this really lead to a crisis and that have been very useful work cool conciliation bills could three to parliament that would give some women the votes and they had all been deceased since but in March nineteen twelve the conciliation bill was brought forward the people were really hopeful would give substantial numbers of women the vote and it was killed because the Irish policy on mass voted against it and then the terms of the home rule bill where and then it's just off the bat and women were excluded from it so it would be as women said home rule for Irish men but not for Irish women and when the Irish party organized a big convention in Dublin to debate this they wouldn't let militant women in grass and have friends Hannah she's skipping didn't try to get in with her and the way women who wore suffrage placards and with testing on the streets were beaten up by a man as a finely on the first of June women held a mass meeting in Dublin the number twenty organizations from all over Ireland and unionists women and nationalist women came together they said they were going to talk about the constitutional issue but the principle of citizenship that women have the right to vote and they sent a petition to the prime minister and to all the political parties and it was ignored so how these rules did conventional methods of registering their protest Greta and some other members of the Irish women's franchise league decided to do something that would draw attention to the lack of provision for women's votes in the home rule bill what do they do Jody the idea was to make a public display and make a point so that it would draw attention to the lack of women's rights so the sound of breaking of the window glass on January twenty eighth one in nineteen thirteen it was a very important incident which she devotes three chapters to sway you with which windows which you breaking this is the Dublin custom window and she from stone and that got to the notice of the gods and she was immediately arrested she was taken to the tunable prison and what she wants what she liked was the attention she got from station borders god drivers news boys and procession of sympathy as she sees and I think this is a message she loan from England during her of protest in England is one of the J. and also what she did and cited like to talk a little bit about what you did inside the J. she practiced constitutional politics all hunger striking and also she's started demanding the status of political prisoners shipped inside did you and I think that is a very useful tactic which helps her later in the Indian nationals none James cousins grace's husband had always been very supportive of questions work not just in practical ways but also as a co editor of a magazine called the Irish citizen which publicize the Irish suffragettes work but James income as a playwright and journalist was often irregular and always modest so when later in the same year nineteen thirteen James received a well paid offer of employment from English manufacture a vegetarian foods maple tens they moved to Liverpool and the plan was to stay briefly there and then move on to India where maple since we're planning a new factory bus Emily things didn't quite work out that way today no they didn't so what happened was that maple tens was planning on using that profits from a new factory that they had purchased earlier that year in Germany to build up their business in India and they got sort of stymied by World War one because of the coming war Germany started seizing all of what they called enemy properties including the new Mableton factory and so there just wasn't any funds to start up the India side of the business no I'm interested in the vegetarian sort of things because this was a vegetarian food manufacturer was it a big movement that yes so the vegetarian food movement along with a number of other sort of movements which combined with a revived interest in spiritualism and specifically with a large movement called the ASA feat and the us if he was really sort of religious spiritual mystical movement mixture of western occult philosophy with eastern religious traditions coming out of Hinduism and Buddhism it was founded in eighteen seventy five by a Russian woman Helena Blavatsky and by the eighteen eighties it had moved it's sort of sensed the international chaos few movement had moved its central interest to southern India and the interesting thing about the awesome he was that it was a movement that saw itself as very spiritually cosmopolitan and the leaders of the movement we're very interested in connecting with globally minded and globally mobile scholars artists and sympathizers and so you have a lot of authors writers artists who are moving back and forth between all sorts of different parts of the British Empire particularly between India and the rest of the British Empire so that there's this big spread of this kind of movement going on an announcement by the early nineteen hundreds one of the leading lights of philosophy was Annie Bessant a woman that was to play a crucial role in the next phase of the cousins life so who was she she was an extraordinary woman who embraced a really wide variety of beliefs she was a British socialist coming from an Irish background she started off as a women's rights activist and she was the rights to it a brilliant always says she's married friend best sounds absurd to men but when she lost her face she left him and became a militant atheist she was a woman who had no half measures in their lives she became an advocate of birth control and was a very famous trial in eighteen seventy seven when she and Charles Brussel we tried from Senate seat to disseminating birth control information and decides to close to the custody of the children but then she met said Madame Blavatsky and became a strong supporter of see also see and that would remain her passion and her beliefs for the rest of her life and the following year Madame Blavatsky died in two years laser anybody's hands moved to India to further the seals of the movement but she was also politically an ardent supporter of Irish and Indian self rule and she became involved in politics in India and finally became the president of the.

"liberal party government" Discussed on What You Need to Know - a #CDNPolicast from Bluesky Strategy

"Welcome to this week's episode of Blue Skies Strategy Groups Canadian podcast. What you need to know about this speak in Canadian politics? I'm Alison Fair and joining me this week. My colleagues Jeff Turner Camera Hallstrom and Neil Brodie Happy Friday everyone morning so we finally got all. The kids are back in Ottawa. Back to school and we kicked it off with the speaker of the House. A comments which I think all of us were quite surprised about We Will Miss Jeff Regan and then we had this speech from the Throne Jeff Let's start with you. Your thoughts on the overall overall content of the speech big day in Ottawa. Yesterday it is just Without a partisan hat on it's always really really sort of reassuring reassuring to watch. I think political science terms what we call the peaceful transfer of power in this case. It's transferring from the government to itself but we go through all this pomp and circumstance stance and we have these We have these protocols and these these sort of a royal prerogatives and all these things because it's a stabilizing force and I think it's always nice to step back in kind of appreciate that. Our system of government does a very good job of evening us out and finding compromises and that's a good segue into what what is this throne speech it is. It is a document intended to start the conversation on compromises and I think the biggest surprise at a top line fine. I wouldn't call it a shock but it's just something we weren't expecting as much of was a bit more specificity in terms of a few specific programs or or specific mentions I think this sort of wisdom going in was that the government was willing to Do what most own speeches do which is paint the sort of broad landscape of the challenges and opportunities facing the country in the years ahead and then proposing how to go about solving solving those and a majority contacts like we saw in two thousand fifteen with the throne speech of the incoming Trudeau government. Typically that that is a a rehash of the campaign platform and the game that everybody would play in. That would be. Hey where's that one platform item seems to have been forgotten and is that a signal that it has auden. was there anything forgotten in your point of view in this renting's forgotten because you you just simply couldn't put the liberal platform and the throne speech and pretend to be interested collaborating with other parties. Not because those things are anathema to those parties I think we saw. There's a lot of shared ground in particular with and EP Social the policy the Conservatives have been opening up much ground to share or a bridge to walk across. I don't think we'll get into that wanted. Eat Yup But we found out if if if there was an additional if there was a ninth were that said oil than Mr Blanchette wouldn't voting for this so I I think they struck balance so what. I was surprised to see us that there are a few more items in there which will lead into the budget conversation with those two potential partners. My sense is the government would prefer to work with the the the blocker back while on the budget But whoever wants to stand behind this throne speech as a declaration of values and priorities. I think every party can see some value in this the questions by these values in playing along politically and what we saw. Some people lead flexing last week because they know the block in the past the government is going to fall today but make no mistake. I mean the number one thing going. Into all of twenty twenty years the Conservatives can't go and find election right now they're leaders imperil And they're they're volunteer basin as a campaign organization would be in disarray. They had to go to the polls two months from now. I mean how many people are going to open volunteer. When you're going through internal party divisions the end EP has less than no money And fewer candidates and have had some serious bruising in different parts of the country although they are trying their best to show it the block wants to stick around as long as possible because their newly relevant relevant again so they they have an interest in sticking around to so and the Liberals have proven leader. uh-huh yes that's right exactly Cam Cam. Jeff brought in there. The word compromise is there enough in that throne speech and will allow the MVP to work with the Liberal Party government. Excuse me this is interesting because I saw your eyes go well couple of his comments commitment. This is interesting because I don't take too much talking. What leaders have to say directly after a throne speech a minority? Because let's face facts. It's just a in. The speech is a statement of high minded ideals for most part. Yes most people have a hard time to scream especially in a minority context. You don't want to get too specific specific and we saw that. There wasn't a lot of specificity. They're eating for a what was there wasn't like knock me over the head. I'm stunned to see this. They're kind of specificity. Starting points the for the MVP even Jagmeet Singh reply to it. Was You know what we wanted to see a bit more we want to see action with all deference prince to meet a throne speech is not where you see action. It's an a legislative piece after so this is part of the dance you see is that you can't seem to be too happy with what you've seen. You can't seem seem to be too upset. And where do you go with this. And Yeah one of the spanners in the works. Here is the fact that you have the block who are just it. I find interesting playing the role. The frankly you used to use Lusa play all the time where he just basically said. I know where I am. You know. You don't want to admit it but it reminds me of the debate us to say well. I know I'm not going to be prime minister to have you know the same right. It's the same kind of role where he can just kind of be how he is and you saw that yesterday. He's like well. I'm going to support it. So that forces everyone else to readjust fast and for the PA how you have to be to be pushing for the things you want to see without maybe pushing too hard. That's kind of the fighting this so I think in the end because the block lock isn't going to back the bill back. I think Mcginn little more room to go with but in the end. There's a lot of things in there that that frankly weren't in the liberal platform. I noticed right away. A federal minimum wage age increase. Something that he's called for a long time and and get heckled about over all the time because just how many people fall under the federal minimum wage get there was. You know there are things like that. And they're the MVP has called for. Okay you can say you've gotten something so there's a few more days to the peace of this as well as people need to kind of calm down the rhetoric a group of it. This is not one of these situations that we saw the last minority where you know where there are always opportunities where the tension was much higher. It's just not there right now. So yeah I heard he over like when we were listening to it yesterday and going over the words in the in the speech you You mentioned possibly that The the wording over handguns ends In in there might not get the reaction from the MVP that the Trudeau government might want the the reaction to past memories and experiences. I wish I could forget To be honest let's face it when it comes to hand when it comes to gun legislation nations general there's history and that's long registry in. Everything came with that and obviously the MVP when that was a big issue at the time it wasn't divisive issue within the caucus us and within the membership It's one of the one of those areas of get one of those cleavages. You could hit in if you really wanted to make life difficult on somewhat and when I when I read quote miles first reaction when I heard that then when I read a little more closely I looked exactly what was said. I Pol these enact handgun gun bandstand. EP called for that. This salt style. assault style rifle ban that something and even called for in the past and the idea of a buyback program. I wouldn't be a D- D did Nestle hit on those areas but again in a in a minority in a in a situation you look at these things are closely how might play out and I can see how constituents of certain MP's will react and the pressures that puts on them to act a certain way and just the unintended consequences. That could bring about. But what I will say is this is that Ah we saw this in the Harper government's because obviously the situation was very different. There wasn't a natural dance partner. You saw a lot more. I called poison pills throwing in their something that somebody had to swallow to get through which made it difficult and and created issues like that. You didn't necessarily see that. There is nothing in there that I would look at. Maybe outside of the The handgun ban for the Conservatives as like a poison pill that was. There's no way I could swallow this. So and so neil poison pill Was it specific enough for the conservative because Andrea Sherr when he afterwards was look quite angry once again and not too thrilled with the contents anti the speech I think sometimes people confuse anger with earnestness or or concern You know people people used to Say See that Andrew Scheer was to smiley and now they say too angry while you know what it's one or the other so Perhaps he's just trying to be more serious Listen Fund fundraising for the Conservative Party of Canada was never better than when we were fighting against the long gun registry That's crass politics but it's the truth Millions millions and millions and millions of dollars poured into the Conservative Party Beginning the day after the liberal government brought into effect the long gun registry Whether Mr Trudeau follows through on what he's placed in this In this speech from the throne regarding Firearm policy is is yet to be seen seen But if he starts down that road We will conserve party will be financially ready for the next election sooner than anybody else anybody else. Any other party in Canada With respect to the rest of the speech from the throne you know the old adage used to be the liberals campaign to the left and governed from the right right now. They're showing that. They are campaigning from left and governing even further left There's there's nothing in here that Sorry right there's not much in here. That appeals to a small C conservative voter The casual conservative supporter There's there's some long-overdue stuff concerns about indigenous health For One Easier access to family doctors Mental health standards in the workplace. That these are all good things That any can he can get behind But as far as a Cross Partisan support I'd be surprised if More than twenty conservative showed up for the vote. Or they're all gonNa vote against it one one of the other. So do you think because in watching the political show's afterwards And my F- My friend and former colleague Don Martin said you know in in all the eight years he he's been covering it in myself as well. We've never seen a throne speech that actually gets to specific. So why were the conservatives like Michelle rental looked like. She was about to a cry on television. Why did the curve conservatives and this is maybe a question for all of you if you're on the party in that in reading in the speech are you telling them to go out there and just be so dramatic on? It isn't a good thing for Canadians to see this drama after the throne speech when there's not too much details in the words start with you Neil. The opposition's Role is to oppose so no matter.

B. O. parliamentary budget off Sir haven't allotted or provided for costing of that so we don't know really what's GonNa Happen Beyond Two thousand twenty two for example with the price on carbon a lot of conversation there has to go up or not it's under the liberals will not commit to any specific number or even they won't even commit to the idea that has to rise and then they say they're gonNA reach this new target and they do a lot of investments to be fair coming public infrastructure transportation especially electric vehicles yes cuts clean tech firms this would include for example companies building battery technology for electric vehicles for those working on next generation solar panels yeah but again like is that enough to get us there he also say they're going to plant two billion trees with the proceeds of tm ex that the pipeline yes trees a remarkable they pulled carbon out of the atmosphere okay much to be seen here but right now with the liberal plan that they have right now they're one hundred megatons short of meeting those targets by twenty thirty okay so just to top off this sort of policy promises from the Liberals lest you a very quick fifteen seconds speed around I'm just rhyme off for me a couple other big liberal promises that people might want to keep in mind when they go to the polls we are starting right now okay fifteen seconds gun control is a big one. They didn't go so far as to ban all handguns nationally they said that they're going to help municipalities do it good luck with that I have no idea legally how that's even going to work but that's the compromise that they reached false prayers are just not going to the camping one where they're promising sort of sub city for lower income people to go camping a the Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made the announcement in front of this lake scenic thing on canoe it was a whole thing I mean it just had a lot of the stuff that you've heard before are to be fair it is aimed at lower people it just was sort of spun as they're giving money for people to go camping when other stuff has gone the joy of roasting marshmallows with the kids or jumping into the lake and hot summer day you just can't beat it.

"Wooded you Joe, man. Randy savage this factor in the risk. No one that does better. Now, does it better repeat myself? Go ahead told me something right now. Moderate. Another episode of art factored is Thursday, March seventh top stories for the day marks gonna do about Justin Trudeau and his exciting scandal. It's it's unbelievable. Unbelievable. What's going on in Canada? You're not gonna. Amazing. I west is gonna tell us about advancements in a cure for aids. Yeah. But don't sell your stock. Just yet. On derby directs went public. I think so okay Trojan then Joe Joe penny. I redo about a German Gardner who gets his revenge and then paddle take us a lightning round of other headlines. Take it away, Mark. Okay. Well, guys, it's not all free pizza on planes in Canada. It's not all mingles and family photos. That's right. Canada's government is going through their very own scandals scandals. A main cabinet minister and Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau's, liberal party government, gene, Philpott resigned. Monday was the second minister in the cabinet to step down Trudeau's cabinet over the same scandal. So Philpot who was the treasury board president said any resignation letter that I've concluded that he must resign as a member of cabinet. Sadly, I've lost confidence in how the government has dealt with this matter and how it has responded to the issue of race three accents. I. Cabinet members. So she was considered actually like superstar cabinet member. So Trudeau losses best person there, and it's over Philpott friend. Former attorney general and Justice minister Jodie Wilson, Ray, built SU who testified last week that Trudeau and senior members of his government inappropriately tried to pressure her to avoid prosecution of a major Canadian engineering company, which will get to later scandal in a case involving allegations of corruption in Libya. So we'll Russian in Libya, we'll get that. And we get out Wilson Ray resigned. And she was the other cabinet members resigned last month, and she resigned after she was demoted and she thinks she was demoted because she wouldn't play ball over this company that was being asked and she was being pressured to not prosecute him because she was so you're telling me a couple of Canadian politicians are not they're above getting involved with some shady ties to other countries. They're both money and late dropping like slippery hockey creating jobs in Canada. Anyways, the leader of the opposition conservative party under shear. Said it's a government in total chaos over here and called for Trudeau to resign. Not for the first time he's called for a few times. Now, I want to police investigation as well. So he sounds like current -servative guy. We had few years ago with Barack and stuff, you know. Yeah. What doesn't surprise me? That Canadians are taking this very seriously. They're so like moral and committed that they deal with Canadian winners every fucking gear like they could just drive to San Diego. But they don't they just deal with the winter. Don't don't tell them that will maybe maybe if you hear the scandal. Maybe you'll have okay? Yeah. Get into this kennel. So it's all about these, you know, Canadians all running home to their log cabins and leaving leaving the government because it's over this Wilson ray-ban lady who I mentioned earlier she testified last week. She was pressured to instruct the director of public prosecutions to negotiate a remediation agreement with essences laflin who's that big engineering company. The agreement would have allowed essence eleven to pay reparations, but a void criminal trial on charges of corruption and bribery because they were charged. So basically she was pressured by Trudeau and people in his in his government into giving as laflin a break. Okay. So if if convicted criminals essence alive when would be banned from receiving any federal government business for a decade and since they're like the biggest government contractor in Canada deaths. That's the end of their company. Right. Doesn't essence so doesn't see lavon. Lynn, they have they're huge force and candidate of nine thousand employees fifty thousand worldwide nine thousand Canada, and what happened was into fifteen the Royal Canadian Mounted police charged essence you laflin with corruption for allegedly paying various Libyan government officials nearly forty eight million dollars.
