The Suffragette Movement is one of the most well known stories int he struggle for further emancipation of the people of Britain. Almost everybody has heard about when Emily Davison went under the King's horse at the Derby wearing her suffragette colours of white, purple and green. The Suffragettes are widely seen as the pinnacle of Women's radical action in the early Twentieth Century. However, was the organisation and its aims as radical as the means used to try to obtain it?
Were the Suffragettes alone in the struggle for female emancipation? And how far can the granting of limited female suffrage in 1918 be attributed to the exploits of these women?
This pamphlet analyses this iconic 'women's' movement and question how far it can really be seen as part of Radical History.
