In 2018, the centenary year of the Representation of the People Act, I worked on a small series of ‘Suffragette Heroine’ paintings
to commemorate the bravery of the women activists from all social backgrounds who suffered imprisonment and force feeding
to help win the ‘Votes For Women’ campaign.

Shown here are Constance Lytton, Millicent Fawcett, Sylvia Pankhurst, Winifred Jones, Ethel Smyth, Annie Kenney and Mary Gawthorpe.
