  • Suffragettes in Indian national dress at the International Suffrage Fair, November 1912. This image was one in a series taken by Christina Broom depicting participants and organisers of the Fair and shows the women posing outside the main entrance of Chelsea Town Hall. The Fair, organised by the Women's Freedom League was intended to raise vital funds for the campaign and inform visitors about the progress of female suffrage throughout the world.

A speech on female suffrage in India was given by Mrs. Ramdulari Dube.  < ...Read more
