Surely it was only in London that suffragettes chained themselves to railings, held enormous processions, went to prison, and burnt down buildings. But women were also making their voice heard in towns and villages across Britain.

This book shows how such women in and around Ipswich were involved - right from the beginning in 1866 up to the outbreak of the First World War. They held exhibitions, meetings, fairs and demonstrations- they put on suffrage plays- they shut themselves in to avoid the Census- they resisted tax - for which their leader went to prison - and had to react to a local act of suffragette arson.
