Suffrage Jujitsu Master

Suffrage Jujitsu Master

Wonderful – there’s a movie coming out about her this year! “This picture depicts Edith Garrud, a womens’ suffrage jujitsu master. She trained up a 30-woman-strong bodyguard squad who guarded militant suffragist leader Emmeline Pankhurst in the 1910s. They fought police, broke windows, burnt buildings and bombed train stations, all to get the vote.”
