Women's suffrage books and movies
by wingTexasWrenwing 5 yrs ago (1/13/2011)

One of the bloggers I follow just read "The Daughter's Walk", a novel based on a true story, I think.

She had daughter's 14 and 10, and wants ideas for books, websites, or movies that she can use to explore this issue more. I knew people here would have good ideas!

There was a marvelous British series that was shown on Masterpiece Theatre (I think) *years* ago, Shoulder to Shoulder, about the suffragist movement in England, focusing on the Pankhurst women. It doesn't appear to be available on DVD (which is a shame), but there is a related book: http://www.amazon.com/---/0394497341

I've passed them on, along with a link to this thread and a plug for BC!

A Kate Chopin period-novella, 'The Awakening’ (from 1899!), traces one woman’s quest for emancipation: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/1840236/ .

For early film work on The Movement, a good place to start would be a landmark issue of The Bioscope: http://bioscopic.wordpress.com/---/suffragettes-before-the-camera/ . . .

AND, for light relief, catch Alec Guinness’s classic cameo in drag as an upper-class suffragette in ‘Kind Hearts and Coronets’: http://www.imdb.com/---/tt0041546/ .

I think she may find it interesting to hear the ladies speak in their own words:

I think there are other links to BBC info on the Sufferagette movement on the bottom of the page.

Hmmmm...

Anna of Byzantium by Tracy Barrett obviously isn't about the suffraqettes, but I'd recommend it for girls that age because it's a YA novel with a strong female main character.
