No Surrender

The year is 1911.  Mill-worker Jenny Clegg has grown up in a world where women are second-class citizens to the men they look after.  A chance encounter with one Mary O’Neil, the young daughter of an aristocrat, changes Jenny’s life for good, and opens up her world to radical political activism. From accounts of marches and protests to troubling descriptions of force-feeding in prisons, Constance Maud’s narrative captures the spirit of the Suffrage movement, and offers an exciting glimpse into the thoughts and determination of the women of the day.
