There is a very interesting website at www.alicesuffragette.co.uk and I would urge you to look at it.
It commemorates Alice Hawkins and includes suffragette memorabilia that once belonged to Alice. It is intended as a learning resource and also includes archive footage, music and a documentary about Alice. Born in 1863, Alice lived most of her life in Leicester. A mother of six and shoe machinist by trade, Alice was determined to have an equal say in the democracy of the day and was imprisoned five times in all in her struggle.
Now safely stored in a Midlands museum, the memorabilia includes Alice’s first arrest warrant, prison notes, press cuttings and postcards from the day.
Congratulations to Peter Barratt for an excellent site.
