The Militant Suffragettes by Antonia Raeburn (1974). Chevalier’s 2001 novel introduces the work of the suffragettes as part of a wider exploration of the changing role of women at the turn of the 20th century. This was the first book I picked up on suffragettes and as an introduction to the violent and imaginative activities of the WSPU it’s brilliant. Anecdotes include that of Isabel Kelley - a daredevil who concealed herself on the roof of Dundee’s Kinnaird Hall for 17 hours before breaking in via scaffolding and a skylight - and the creation of an armed guard, wielding wooden clubs for protection of high-level WSPU speakers.

Many books about the suffragettes’ plight have followed. Most focus on the famed Pankhursts, but others have delved into the stories of lesser-known activists and the wider impact of their campaign. To mark this year’s milestone and International Women’s Day, we’ve picked eight of the best. It focuses on the life of Kitty Marion, a militant suffragette and eccentric who made her living as an actor in music halls. Historian Fern Riddell has said that she became obsessed by Marion when completing her PhD, and her fixation shines through in this dogged record of Marion’s movements during the battle for suffrage and beyond.
