Determined, Courageous Women

Letters of Note always gives insight into both individuals and events.  



from Letters of Note

(written in 1913)

Sir, 
Everyone seems to agree upon the necessity of putting a stop to Suffragist outrages; but no one seems certain how to do so. There are two, and only two, ways in which this can be done. Both will be effectual. 
1. Kill every woman in the United Kingdom. 2. Give women the vote.  
Yours truly,Bertha Brewster
