The Suffragettes In Pictures

by Diane Atkinson - £16.99  History Press (2010)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780752457963 | ISBN 10: 0752457969

The Suffragette Movement was one of the most important political lobbying organisations in British history. Their fight for the right of women to vote highlighted the deep divide between the sexes that had existed for generations. Women sacrificed their positions in society and some, ultimately, their lives for the cause.
 
Theirs is a story of passion and personality from the famous figures of Emmeline Pankhurst, Annie Kenney and Emily Wilding Davison, to the behind-the-scenes activities at the Women’s Social and Political Union, their public propaganda work, the brilliant set-piece demonstrations and the escalation of militancy from ‘pestering the politicians’ to burning down buildings and attacking works of art.
 
The moving and often shocking images that are central to this story are taken from the Suffragette Fellowship Collection.
 
See for yourself how women changed political history and won themselves the right to vote.
