Remembering the First World War: Unknown stories of women living during the I World War.

The UK is remembering the memory of those who fell in the First World War.  Particularly touching is the centenary of the Battle of Somme (1 July to 18 November 1916) where many thousands died during this famous battle. RIP, heroes.

However, we would like to write about unknown stories of women who were living at that time. While young men were fighting for us, these women who  normally are portrayed as heroines for Hollywood, were in fact protesting against something.

While in America a psychopath feminist (read here) wanted to eliminate black people, jewish and italians using abortion, we could find the  same kind of madness in the UK with the Suffragettes, the most popular terrorist women from the last century.

According to the popular narrative “feminist peace and love” ( A LIE), the suffragettes led by Emmeline and Christabel Pankhurst fought a noble campaign for female suffrage and, after a valiant struggle, were ultimately successful. Curiously, ( THE TRUTH) the campaign of intimidation, violence and arson they waged largely goes without criticism.

The reality was much more complex, however, and many important historical perspectives have been airbrushed from of our collective memory. For example, the simple fact was that at the start of the 20th century, most men also did not have the right to a parliamentary vote. But this is rarely mentioned for feminists and feminists journalists.

Only wealthy property owning men could vote in parliamentary elections, and prior to the 1832 Reform Act, only 2% of men in the UK had such a vote[2]. As of 1903, this had risen to one third[3], but the fact remains that, whilst Mrs. Pankhurst and her supporters were fighting for their right to vote, the overwhelming majority of young men sent to the trenches in 1914 lacked any political franchise. Unlike the suffragettes, however, they were fighting for the their lives rather than the vote. Young and poor men could not vote. Many of these men were poor educated but were brave enough to be sent to battle for the UK. They were sent to fight for British people.

Over 1.1 million Service men lost their lives during the First World War. Mainly MEN. Forget the British political correctness lie (…men and women lost their lives during the First World War…). It is FALSE. Men losing their lives were the rule. Women losing their lives were the exception. A life is a life and gender does not turn a life less important than another but the feminist media lie to us putting women fighting side by side with men. It IS A MYTH.

Where were the feminsts at that time?

Few years before the First World War these evil women were bombing the UK. Suffragettes ‘were like al-Qa’eda’. If contemporary society judged the actions of the militant suffragettes to be equal to those of groups such as al-Qa’eda, whose historical identity has become central to discussions of terrorism, why should we continue to ignore or lessen the nature of Suffragettes violence?

All violent acts of militant suffrage can be viewed as acts of terror.

They were specifically designed to influence the government and the wider public to change their opinions on women’s suffrage, not by reason, but by threats of violence. These threats were then carried out and ranged from window breaking to the destruction of communications (post-box burning, telegraph and telephone wires being cut); the damage of culturally significant objects (paintings in national galleries, statues covered in tar, glass boxes smashed in the Jewel House of the Tower of London); and arson attacks on theatres, MP’s houses and sporting pavilions. At the more extreme end, bombs and incendiary devices were placed in and outside of banks, churches and even Westminster Abbey.
In the city of Leeds, an explosion took place which was so loud that it was heard across the entire city. It had taken place at the Harewood Territorial Army Barracks in Woodhouse Lane, one of the main streets of the city. The barracks were being used as a temporary police base at the time of this incident. It was a miracle that nobody was seriously hurt by the dynamite bomb which was lobbed over the wall of the barracks, landing near the canteen. A caretaker was cut by flying glass when all the windows in the nearby buildings were blown in. A near casualty was Sergeant-Major Payne of the West Riding Ambulance Corps. He was sitting in his office and the blast knocked him off his chair.

These were the first feminists: terrorists. The Women’s Social and Political Union(WSPU) and their supporters was reaching its height. The leaders (the Pankhurst family in particular) were brilliant propagandists but no more truthful than any other group of politicians or pressure group leaders. They lied shamelessly when the facts were not to the organisation’s advantage or credit.

It is their legacy, and the protectors of that legacy, which have shaped memories of the actions of this group of determined, dangerous women, whose campaign methods ranged from window-breaking to arson attacks, bombings, even suicide attempts.

Furthemore,the suffragettes were among those who handed white feathers to males not in uniform, including teenage boys as young as 16 (who could not vote). Sylvia Pankhurst wrote in her chronicle, “The Suffragette Movement”…

“Mrs. Pankhurst toured the country, making recruiting speeches. Her supporters handed the white feather to every young man they encountered wearing civilian dress, and bobbed up at Hyde Park meetings with placards: “Intern Them All.”

Emmeline and Christabel were wealthy  women and enthusiastic advocates of violence, but, as female members of the upper-class, they were relatively immune from harm themselves because they were protected by society and by men. They were sending poor and young men to fight for them while they were teaching other women how to bomb our coutrny and kill people.

The question is:Why have historians failed to fully engage with the issue of suffragette violence?
