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.” HT Dan Eastwood #sociology
