Talk by Christine Workman “Lancaster Suffragists & Suffragettes”. Christine started researching Selina Martin for her history lessons to give her students a local interest. She’s been researching women's history ever since.
Annie Croft Helme was a Suffragist, a peaceful campaigner, while Selina Martin and Mary Redhead were militant Suffragettes. It looks at what they did in the campaign, including going to prison and being force fed in the case of Selina Martin, as well as giving the bigger picture of the campaign as a whole. The Suffragettes campaigned countrywide, while Annie Helme led the Suffragist campaign in Lancaster.
