BBC – Suffragette Allies (2018)

BBC Suffragette Allies

Looks at the men who backed votes for women. Suffrage campaigns were led by women, but some men played key supporting roles. These included male activists like Fred Pethick-Lawrence, who was convicted and forcibly fed in gaol, and MPs like John Stuart Mill and Keir Hardie who spoke out in the Commons. Without allies in the all-male parliaments of the day, women would not secure a change in the law. Presented by former Deputy Speaker Natascha Engel.
