Banner 1 for #suffrajitsu is in the green, gold and white of the Women's Freedom League and represents the hills and mills of Lancashire, where our young heroine begins her adventure. @horseandbamboo#banner
Designs for two applique banners which will form part of the set for the new @horseandbamboo production #suffrajitsu which will tour in the autumn. Just got to make them now! Fortunately they are going to be quite small, so I won't have to do much fabric wrestling.

International Women’s Day 2: know your suffrajitsu. Edith Garrud taught jiu-jitsu to fellow suffragettes, so they could defend themselves when they were inevitably attacked by the police and outraged members of the public. We all need a bit of suffrajitsu, mental or physical, as we continue to fight for justice. Taken from the BBC news site. #internationalwomensday#edithgarrud#suffragette#suffragettes#suffrajitsu

Edith Garrud was 4 feet 11 inches tall, but she could throw a police man over her shoulder in self defence.
That was no problem for Edith for she had learnt the ancient martial art of Ju-Jitsu! Suffragette the Battle for Equality coming soon #vote100#suffrajitsu
