Once upon a time, I didn’t really “get” the women’s suffrage movement until my history professor from years ago shared a quote by a militant Suffragette:
“Our hearts burn within us when we read the great mottoes which celebrate the liberty of your country; when we go to France and we read the words, liberty, fraternity, and equality, don’t you think that we appreciate the meaning of those words? And when we wake to the knowledge that these things are not for us, they are only for our brothers, then there comes a sense of bitterness into the hearts of some women, and they say to themselves, “Will men never understand?” – Emmeline Pankhurst (1858-1928)
I love it when the things I studied at university come to life on screen.
The foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State..
