Movie Info

Documentary which uses dramatised testimony to tell the story of a group of working-class women conducting a dangerous campaign for the vote and the attempts by the state to stop them. Lucy Worsley explores the actions of these women as their campaign becomes more and more dangerous, and she has access to an amazing range of artefacts, from hunger-striking medals to defused bombs and private letters.

  • Normally such contrivance would have been wildly irritating, but the historian's respect for the subject was so clear one forgave the silliness.

  • There is something so charmingly engaging about Lucy Worsley - who wasn't afraid to criticise the Suffragettes for their violence.

  • Absent were the comfy stereotypes of feisty, flinty heroines chaining themselves stoically to gates, passively leafletting. Instead we saw the all-out violence - the bombs, the arson, the fear, the terrorism - deemed necessary
