About this item

Lady Constance Lytton, daughter of a Viceroy of India, seemed the most unlikely of suffragettes. Witnessing the trial of Emmeline and Christobel Pankhurst, she was converted to the cause of women's suffrage. Constance changed her life, rejected her aristocratic background, and acquired a purpose. As an activist Lytton disguised her identity to avoid privileged treatment and when arrested, and subsequently jailed, went on hunger strike, being force-fed eight times. Constance Lytton became both an inspiration and a martyr.

Lyndsey Jenkins is a political speechwriter who has written for some of the United Kingdom's most influential politicians.

The extraordinary and captivating story of Lady Constance Lytton, born an aristocrat and heroine of the women?s suffrage movement.
