  • Music score and words for 'The March of the Women'. Composed by Ethel Smyth with words by Cicely Hamilton. 'March of the Women' was played for the first time in public on Saturday 21 January 1911 at a social event at Suffolk Street Galleries to welcome those imprisoned after Black Friday. Votes for Women reported that 'The fiery spirit of revolution united with religious solemnity, the all-conquering union of faith and rebellion which makes the strength of the militant movement, is expressed in Smyth's Marching Song. It is at once a hymn and a call to battle'. The title page is printed with a drawing in purple, white & green by Margaret Morris.
