This radio programme looks at the history of the suffragette movement through the voices of the women involved.

It uses audio recorded in the 1970s that has never been broadcast before.

Women describe how they were beaten by police, force fed and drugged for demanding the right to vote.

Suffragette historian Elizabeth Crawford is among those commenting on the archives, which are stored at London Metropolitan University’s Women’s Library.
