Title

Going Shopping

Description

All for the Cause

[Image: It draws attention to the organized breaking of shop windows. Fighting with the police was a particular favorite of the commercial publishers. This usually involved presenting the suffragettes as either ineffective and hysterical in the face of calm authority (as below) or as enjoying the attention of the male police officers. Reports at the time suggest that this presentation was far from the truth and that sexual assaults on the women by police and the male crowds were ignored by the media.]
