Art, Theatre and Women's Suffrage Paperback
Edited by Cheryl Robson, Rebecca Gillieron
At a time when many are reluctant to adopt the label 'feminist', and when the movement towards proper female representation is almost at a standstill, this timely celebration of creativity during the suffragette campaign reminds us that women's role in the politics of the nation should not be taken for granted.
From the sublime enamelled pendants of the artist Ernestine Mills to the extreme performances of the Actresses' Franchise League, this book explores the many weird and wonderful ways the suffragettes chose to publicise their cause.
ART, THEATRE AND WOMEN'S SUFFRAGE invites us to marvel at the imagination, talent and sheer commitment of some quite brilliant individuals and their work.
Featuring writers, artists and performers such as Cicely Hamilton, Inez Bensusan, Elizabeth Robins, Ernestine Mills, Olive Hockin, Mary Lowndes, Sylvia Pankhurst, Ellen Terry, Edith Craig and more.
