Holloway's Ladies





Holloway’s Ladies tells the story of women's suffrage at Royal Holloway College. The historical graphic novel follows a modern day student doing research on several of the early women from Royal Holloway College.

The lives of Ellen Charlotte Higgins, Emily Wilding Davison, and Winifred Mary Seville come to life as she continues to research further. Readers travel along, witnessing impassioned debates, sneaking through underground tunnels, and being thrown into prison. Learn about the lives of three very different women who lived during such a pivotal time in Women's History.

Holloway’s Ladies was created by Kirsten Hankins as part of the MA Public History at Royal Holloway. It is based primarily on sources from the Royal Holloway Archives with support from the Bedford Centre for the History of Women and Egham Museum.
