“I would rather be a rebel than a slave”. Words spoken by leader of the British suffragette movement Emmeline Pankhurst during a speech to her followers.
The Women’s Suffrage Movement Book commemorates one hundred years since Parkhurst and her fellow suffragettes helped bring about the right for women to vote.
It contains 180 pages worth of newspaper articles that have been carefully handpicked from the archives, providing a fascinating insight into not only the struggles of the suffragettes who fought for equality, but also the often-prejudiced views of journalists at the time.
The book begins with stories from 1906, right the way through to the historic decision in 1918 that would change British society forever.
