Suffragettes fought for women’s right to vote
March, Women, March – review by Karen Clare (FT July 2013)
Published to mark the 100th anniversary of the death of suffragette Emily Wilding Davison, author Lucinda Hawksley gathers together extracts of letters and diaries relating to the women’s movement, exploring events back to the first ‘feminist’ book in 1792. The ‘miserable’ existence of many of our women ancestors is brought starkly to life, making this a shocking but inspirational read.

Suffragettes – review by Karen Clare (FT July 2013)
Frank Meeres, of Norfolk Record Office, has used his archivist skills to sniff out the story of the suffragettes, from the Victorian era to the end of World War I. The result is a well-illustrated and vivid account of how the fight for women’s rights affected the lives of our female forebears.
