Footnotes

  • SCARCE PROGRAMME FOR ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT 'VOTES FOR WOMEN' DEMONSTRATIONS, IN FINE CONDITION. Held in Hyde Park, London on 21 June 1908, the march was attended by an estimated 200,000 supporters. The programme, printed by Mrs. Burgess, has a highly decorative outer border of violets printed in purple, green and white (to symbolise dignity, hope and purity) enclosing portraits of 20 important female speakers, and a map detailing the seven routes to the park. The failure of the huge, peaceful protest to influence the government was instrumental in forcing the Suffragette movement towards more disruptive methods.
