Suffragettes | Women recall their struggle to win the vote
CHANNEL | Unknown
FIRST BROADCAST | 13 July 1958
DURATION | 4 minutes 26 seconds
Winifred Mayo affectionately remembers Mrs Emmeline Pankhurst and recalls breaking two windows at the Guards Club in Pall Mall, one of them while being restrained by a policeman. The offence earned her a fortnight in Holloway, but aroused the interest of several guards officers, who actually attended a suffrage meeting to learn more about the movement.
The 1912 stone-throwing campaign, initiated by Emmeline and Christabel Pankhurst, was launched on London's unsuspecting West End on the 1st March with the smashing of several shop windows and culminated in Emmeline and two other women breaking four of Prime Minister Asquith's windows.
