SUFFRAGETTE PROCESSION, OCT. 7, 1911

[Image: Postcard with photograph of women holding banners, flags and umbrellas. The banner at the front proclaims 'Kensington Women's Social and Political Union'.

The Women's Social and Political Union organised this procession on behalf of the Tax Resistance League. Members of the various suffrage groups which participated marched from Kingsway to Holloway and listened to speakers including Christabel Pankhurst. This was done to protest against the imprisonment in Holloway of Clemence Housman for non-payment of 'inhabited house duty'. Housman was a wood engraver and co-founder of artists' group the Suffrage Atelier. She was also a member of the WSPU and the Tax Resistance League. The TRL conducted a campaign of organised resistance to taxation, arguing that women should not have to pay tax until they were given the vote and could have a say in how the taxes were spent.]
