Women and Power: The Struggle for Suffrage marks the centenary of the 1918 Act which gave some women the right to vote for the first time. It tells the story of the suffrage movement through the debates heard in the drawing rooms, kitchens and bedrooms of National Trust houses, as the country argued over whether, and how, a woman should have a voice in public life. New research has uncovered unique stories about the people involved in the fight for – and indeed against – women’s suffrage.

Both sides of the debate are vividly represented, from the most militant suffragettes – such as Violet Ann Bland, kitchenmaid at Dudmaston Hall in Shropshire, who endured imprisonment and violent force-feeding – to the most ardent anti-suffragists, including the National Trust’s own founder, Octavia Hill, who exhorted that a woman should concentrate on ‘her duties, not on her rights’. This book remembers a struggle that divided and touched every corner of our nation.
