Listening to the Commons: the sounds of debate and the experience of women in Parliament c.1800

This project will investigate whether women had a presence in the UK’s House of Commons before they were granted the right to vote and stand as MPs. It unites political history with creative digital acoustic technology, virtual reality and buildings archaeology to explain the participation of women in debates long before they were formally enfranchised in 1918. The project will form part of “Vote 100”, the Parliament’s centenary celebration of women gaining the vote. Its contribution will be adapting a 3D visual model of the Commons chamber to recover the soundscape of debate as experienced by women listening through a ventilator in the old House of Commons ceiling around 1800. Women were forced to listen from the space after their ejection from the public galleries in 1778. The researchers will explore women’s engagement with Parliament through this hidden space.
