Campaigning for the Vote: Kate Frye's Suffrage Diary

Campaigning for the Vote: Kate Frye's Suffrage Diary

Date
22/02/2018
Location:
Windsor Building Auditorium
Description
Kate Frye (1878-1959) kept a diary from the age of nine until a few months before her death. This voluminous diary is now held in Royal Holloway's Archives. Between 1906 and 1915 Kate was actively involved in the women's suffrage campaign, first as a volunteer and then, from 1911 as a paid organizer for the New Constitutional Society for Women's Suffrage. This illustrated talk will recount something of her life as a suffrage foot-soldier as well as drawing on her accounts of the many spectacular suffrage scenes she witnessed – such as the 'Black Friday' riot in Parliament Square (18 November 1910), Emily Wilding Davison's funeral procession through London (14 June 1913), and the riot as Mrs Pankhurst led a demonstration at the gates of Buckingham Palace on 21 May 1914.
