No Surrender
CONSTANCE MAUD
No Surrender (1911) is a suffragette novel par excellence, with a narrative faithful to real facts and incidents and some of the main characters being based on leading suffrage figures. It is about a Lancashire mill girl, thus putting paid to the myth that the suffrage movement was middle- class.When Emily Davison reviewed No Surrender, she wrote: ‘There is scarcely a notable incident of the militant campaign which is left untouched. For vivid realism, the pictures of prison life, of the Hunger Strike and Forcible Feeding, are difficult to beat. It is a book which breathes the very spirit of our Women’s Movement.’
