One Response to Celebrate the Women Chainmakers

  1. Keith Bracey says:

    Very pertinent with the 100th Anniversary of the death of Emily Dowling at The Derby in 1913 who was a martyr in the cause of Woman’s suffrage. Sadly votes for women was not achieved until 1928 but Emily did not die in vain…..this whole process built upon the Women Chainmakers’ strike in 1910 which brought the issue of working women to the fore in Edwardian England.
