Suffragettes vs. the State – the Movement for Women’s Suffrage Through The National Archives Records

From the early 20th century, militant methods used by the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU) created a climate of uncertainty across the country. Acts escalated from cutting telephone wires to arson and the use of explosives. The nature of these campaigns created a logistical struggle for the government, which was unprepared for such tactics. The National Archives has a world-renowned collection of documents relating to the 20th century women’s suffrage movement; the collection reflects the interests of the government and offers an insight into how it responded to civil disobedience and changes to public opinion. A vast array of campaigning techniques was tried by the Suffragettes. In this talk Vicky Iglikowski, Principal Records Specialist – Diverse Histories at The National Archive, will explore some of them, including in case studies relating to Suffragette Princess Sophia Duleep Singh. Ultimately this talk will explore The National Archives' collection of suffrage documents, showing the lengths suffragettes were willing to go to for the vote and the response from the state. Part of the Festival of Norfolk and the Punjab. Booking essential via the Leaping Hare Box Office.
