Up the women…

It’s St. Swithun’s day. It’s also Emmeline Pankhurt’s birthday.


There’s a celebratory Google Doodle and everything.



I thought I would join in the fun by sharing some clips from lively but short-lived t.v. show “Up The Women”

Just look at those lovely shirt-waists!  The show is about Margaret’s attempts to transform The Banbury Intricate Craft Circle into a new (sort of) political group ‘Banbury Intricate Craft Circle Politely Request Women’s Suffrage’.    Most of the other members aren’t too sure what suffrage is or why they might want it but if there’s cake and fancy rosettes, they’ll give anything a shot. The best episode (of the three) was when Emmeline Pankhurst shows up and she’s not quite what anyone expected…

Happy birthday Emmeline!
