I voted today. I trained #jiujitsu today. The convergence of these two things: the 19th Amendment, granting women the vote in America, passed in 1920 (although many women were still prevented from voting by Jim Crow laws and various anti-minority voting laws/voter suppression through 1966). Suffragettes used jiujitsu in the UK in their attempts to get the right to vote. #trainjiujitsu #vote #suffragettes #brazilianjiujitsu #jiujiteiras #suffrajitsu #womenwhotrain #womensupportwomen @suffrajitsu (293) [fun fact: Mississippi didn’t ratify the 19th Amendment until 1984]
Edith Garrud taught jiu-jitsu to the suffragettes of London to help them learn to defend themselves against attacks from rowdy anti-suffragists and the police.

Jiu-Jitsu players: do you know the political role our sport had for women? In the early 1900’s “The Amazons” (aka “The Suffragettes”) trained BJJ in underground warehouses in London. Women were being encountered with violence, who were fighting for the right to vote. So, they learned to fight back. Watch the movie @thesuffragettes_ See how women have used BJJ as a means of political assertion, self-defense & to gain rights. With “The Suffragettes” always in mind, I head to a voting party this evening, to go through the voter’s pamphlet, issue by issue, with people of ALL political persuasions, to get informed & make an educated decision on my own. I practiced BJJ today. Now, it’s time to exercise the rights these women worked so hard for 🗳👊 #vote #suffragette #london #suffragettes #bjj #womenwhovote #jiujitsu #suffrajitsu #votingparty #useyourvoice #empowered #confidence #civicduty #herstory #jiujitsugirls #bjjwomen

EDITH GARRUD (1872-1971) var en av de första kvinnliga kampsportsinstruktörerna i Europa. Redan 1898 började hon träna Ju-Jitsu. Snart höll hon själv i klasser för både kvinnor och män. Under början av 1900-talet blev hon engagerad i Suffragetterna, som kämpade för kvinnors rösträtt i Storbrittanien. Där kom hon att utveckla en självförsvarstil för kvinnor som medierna kom att kalla: ”Suffrajitsu!” #självförsvarförkvinnor #womenselfdefense #jujitsu #suffrajitsu

Temple University students were practicing jiu-jitsu for self-defense way back in 1920. The first women's self-defense movement coincided with the rise of the women's suffrage movement. Physical empowerment paralleled political empowerment as a means of fighting back against oppression.

So proud of these #stantonburycampus students, part of #shouldertoshoulder at #stantonburytheatre performing #suffrajitsu Photos by Jane Russell.
Rehearsals have started at @horseandbamboo for the #suffrajitsu production. Really chuffed to get positive feedback from Suffrajitsu performer @gemmakhawaja about the banners. I've loved making them and can't wait to see them in action alongside the set and puppets by Emma Brierly. Photo: Gemma Khawaja

#Repost @herownheroselfdefense ・・・ Women started studying self-defense in the early 20th century in part to protect themselves from unwanted advances from “mashers.” A masher was a term used to describe man who sexually harassed women on the street.

And here's number two. It just needs its washers on now so it can be attached to and easily removed from the set with magnets. Both banners will be used as part of the set for #suffrajitsu with this one setting the scene for our Lass from Lancashire's adventure in London where she encounters the suffragettes.
First one completely finished! This will set the scene for Annie's workplace, a mill in Rossendale. It has velcro on the back so it can easily be attached to the set for #suffrajitsu

I'm absolutely terrified of getting in trouble. Even when I'm not I think I am. If I'd been a suffragette/suffragist I definitely would have been the one at home sewing the banners. #suffrajitsu #suffragette #banner @horseandbamboo
Design and make a machine stitched image... Not a problem. Sew image straight onto other straight thing... Not a bloody chance. I just don't do straight lines. I've really been putting it off. One of the things I've loved about this process is being able to wear and use my wrist pincushion. Oh the joy! #banner #pincushion #suffragette #suffrajitsu #backdrop @horseandbamboo

I love it when a plan (starts to) come together. Back at the sewing machine today. #suffrajitsu #banner
I’ve never seen a pit band have so much fun. #OVSYLVIA was a JAM! @oldvictheatre #theatre #newmusicals #suffrajitsu
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.

😍🤺🎭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!

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

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!

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
