From Soap Boxes to Tea Sets: How the Suffragette Movement got into People’s Hearts and Homes

Antonia Byatt

The women in the suffrage movement were modern day experts on public campaigning, infiltrating hearts and homes with messages for 'the cause'. Antonia Byatt, who was the first director of The Women's Library, looks at some of the techniques they used to get the women's vote into the public mind. From public marches across the country (with all the associated press coverage) to badges, teacups and cook books, they were highly skilled at taking the campaign into people's everyday lives.

This is second of the Mondays at One series of lectures, From St Paul's Cross to Hyde Park Corner: Public Oratory in London from the Middle Ages to the Present Day. The other lectures in this series are as follows:
The Development of the Early English Newspaper
The Mosley Riots

Free Speech and State Control
