Suffragette Fellowship Collection from the Museum of London
14 reels of microfilm. The printed materials include pamphlets, plays, newspaper clippings, and annual reports of suffragette organizations, such as the Women’s Social and Political Union and the Women’s Freedom League. Manuscripts include unpublished autobiographies, police and court documents, and correspondence of pioneers of the movement, such as the Pankhursts, as well as many lesser-known women. Reel 14 contains photographs. The numbering of the documents and the index are unclear and inconsistent. The collection lacks a rational organization; it is neither topical nor chronological. To use this collection requires time and patience.
Date Coverage: early 20th century
