Overview

Presenting a vivid picture of Suffragette life, this book draws extensively on the little-known but important Suffragette Fellowship Collection of archive photographs, newspapers, personal correspondence, artifacts, and memoirs
 
The strength of this book is its rare images of the Suffragette campaign leading to the outbreak of World War I. It also documents leading personalities in the Suffragette movement, such as Emmeline Pankhurst, Annie Kenney, and Emily Wilding Davison; 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 book also explores what happened to these incredible women after their war was won and the vote was granted to them.
