Back to carving. Hello Annie. #suffrajitsu #horseandbamboo #puppettheatre #handtools
We absolutely loved the musical Sylvia @oldvictheatre by @zoonationuk and thrilled that ‘Suffrajitsu’ Edith Garrud features. She was the inspiration for our banner for Digital Drama’s #100banners Superb show on the life of Sylvia Pankhurst #votesforwomen #vote100 #suffrage100 #suffrajitsu #womensinstitute #edithgarrud #sylviapankhurst
Managed to get to the ‘At last! Votes for Women’ exhibition at the LSE Library which ends on Wed. Lovely to see our Suffrajitsu banner featuring Edith Garrud whose portrait sculpture outside Finsbury Park tube station was our inspiration. A great setting for the other banners made for Digital Drama’s 100 banners project earlier in the year. #lselibrary #digitaldrama #100banners #suffrajitsu #edithgarrud #votesforwomen #womensinstitute @wistreatham #fielddameswi @n1_wi_islington @woolplumroses #lsesuffrage18 #visiblewomen #vote100
🔮🔮🔮Yas. Bowled over by what I'm learning researching the suffragettes and suffragists for @suffragette_ rehearsals. I thought I new the story. I didn't.

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
😍🤺🎭Over the moon to announce I've been cast in Suffragette the Musical (@suffragette_ ). We're multi-roling but Katherine 'Kitty' Marshall and Emily Davison are two of the bigguns I'm playing. We start rehearsing next month and tour East Anglia in Sept/Oct. Excited to be working with an all female powerhouse of talent : @sophie.Scannell @helenjane91 @missangelinehunt @daisy_rushforth & Charlotte Parry. Kitty was a militant suffragette and the personal bodyguard of Emmeline Pankhurst. Emmeline had a team of elite secret female protectors known as collectively as The Bodyguard or 'Mrs Pankhursts Amazon's', who defended her from anti-suffragists and the police. They were trained in ju-jitsu in 1911 by the Western world's first female martial arts instructor, Edith Garrud. I had no idea about this thirty-strong, all-female protection team and I'm already falling down a rabbit hole of research. I've discovered a graphic novel series called Suffrajitsu and a book released about her life this year called Kitty and the Cats. Emily Davison I'm sure you all know as the suffragette who was fatally killed by Kings George V's horse at the 1913 Derby, although a C4 docu recently claimed she was actually trying to fix a scarf to the horse and didn't intend to get herself killed. Regardless she was arrested nine times, went on hunger strike seven times and was force fed on forty-nine occasions; if these women were shoes they'd be steel toe cap Doc Martens. Btw if anyone has any relevent info please comment or slide into my DM's.

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.
Very proud to be invited to GMB Trade Union 5th Annual Women's Conference showing some life-saving self defence techniques and talking about #suffrajitsu ! Jiu jitsu in the sufferegettes! A very inspiring day and lovely to meet some amazing women representing from all different backgrounds #inspired #LBGT #transgender #equality #equalityatwork #sufferagettes #edithgarrud #BOSSconf18
Fanny al fresco!! Gorgeous boozy, picnic grub-filled eve with pals watching ‘Fanny’s First Play’ at the Hertfordshire home of G B Shaw himself. @nationaltrust @shawscornernt The sun shone, the gin flowed, our neighbours had a 6-course-silver-service picnic, I reminisced about costuming this 12 years ago at drama-school.... a lovely evening....... #culture #summerinthecountry #nationaltrust #picnic #georgebernardshaw #fanny #rada #lovelyevening #gardens #fabiansociety #suffrajitsu #radamemories #gbs
Working on the set for new #horseandbamboo show, #suffrajitsu #puppettheatre #thisgirlcan
I spent a long time justifying this to myself as it wasn’t cheap, but I’m now the proud owner of this fabulous 1906 jujutsu book #Hema #jujitsu #jujutsu #suffrajitsu #edwardian
New addition to the collection #jujitsu #bartitsu #hema #suffrajitsu
Loving seeing the #Suffrajitsu taking form! @emma_brierley_ set designs are just beautiful we can't wait to see the finished thing!
When a day's work involves puppets, stories and lovely people. #lovemyjob #suffrajitsu @horseandbamboo
A treat to be asked to speak at this event - and it was so much fun! #nationalarchives #suffrajitsu #jujitsuffragettes #vote100
Newest piece is a jui-jitsu wielding suffragette. Found some great articles and a fantastic graphic novel series called Suffrajitsu. @ them on twitter or go to Suffrajitsu.com for more. The medal on her jacket is for going on a hunger strike with tiny bars on it stating length of each strike. Edith Margaret-Garrud (4’11”) was one of the 1st female martial arts instructors in the Western world and helped train the suffragettes to defend themselves. Helena Bonham Carter’s character in the movie Suffragette is loosely based on her. Amazing women. #suffragette #suffrajitsu #jujitsu #martialarts #suffrage #minifigures #minis #miniature #history #womenshistory #helenabonhamcarter #womenempowerment #womenhelpingwomen #hungerstrike #womeninhistory #miniatures #votesforwomen DM me if you’d like to purchase. Just finished a couple of hours ago so she’s not on website yet.

A slamming surprise in the post today from @horseandbamboo #suffrajitsu #suffragette100 #crowdfunder
Following the violent repression of a Suffragette march on Black Friday in 1910, it was felt that women needed to be able to defend themselves. Suffragette Edith Garrud knew martial arts, and began running regular suffragette-only classes. The term Suffrajitsu was coined by the media. Try your hand of jiu-jitsu, and learn about the Suffragettes at the Feminist Fete on 13 May at the #TowerofLondon : http://bit.ly/TowerFeministFete #womenMW #museumweek #FeministFete #suffragettes #VotesandVoices #Vote100 #suffrage #women #history #womenshistory #WSPU #Suffrajitsu
Cast off the shackles of yesterday! Shoulder to shoulder into the fray! Our daughters' daughters will adore us! And they'll sing in grateful chorus "Well done, Sister Suffragette!" It's been 100 years since posh women (and poor men) got the vote. 18 May!

Favourite beer in Bath #suffrajitsu
Daily #Suffragette ! The final week! Kitty Marshall was the actual founding member of the suffragette bodyguard using Jiu Jitsu as self defence. Donate to the crowdfunder if you think there should be a play about this! www.crowdfunder.co.uk/suffrajitsu 42 down, 7 to go! #suffrajitsu
En la década de los 1910s, las mujeres del Reino Unido se manifestaron por su derecho al voto y se enfrentaron a violencia e intimidación, por lo que aprendieron jujutsu para poder defenderse. #jujutsu #jujitsu #jiujitsu #selfdefense #martialarts #suffragettes #suffrajitsu #womensday #diadelamujer

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
Arrived nice and early for my latest #suffrajitsu banner workshop at @horseandbamboo. Except there isn't one today. I am a daft arse. Home again, home again for more sewing. #suffragette #Lancashire #100years
We’re at Sunday’s #March4Women @careintuk with our banner as part of Digital Drama’s #100banners project. Our inspiration is Edith Garrud, martial arts instructor to the Suffragettes, and her portrait sculpture at Finsbury Park tube station. #digitaldrama #suffragette #suffrajitsu #womensinstitute #womensmarch #suffragettebanner #suffragecentenary #edithgarrud
The suffragette that knew jiu-jitsu. A cartoon from 1910 up on the wall in my Grandpa’s flat of my relative Edith Garrud. She was one of the first female martial arts instructors in the western world and trained the Bodyguard unit of the Suffragettes . . . . . . . . #suffragettes #edithgarrud #jiujitsu #martialarts #selfdefense #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
