Deeds, Not Words

Title

Deeds, Not Words

Description

British women fought for the vote under the banner “Deeds, Not Words.” Looking at this image of a cricket club set ablaze in 1913, I marvel at their rage, expressed. According to @suffragettelife - a kindred spirit across the Atlantic - the arsonists left pamphlets and a photo of leader Emmeline Pankhurst (then very ill from hunger striking) in front of the burning building. The attack may have been prompted by a club official who reportedly said: "It is not true that women are banned from the pavilion. Who do you think makes the teas?"
