Les suffragettes        Ni paillassons, ni prostituées

 

Documentaire de Michèle Dominici        2011        53 min

 

 

Dans la seconde moitié

du XIXe siècle,

au Royaume-Uni,

des femmes

commencent

à s’organiser

pour militer en faveur

du droit de vote.

 

En 1905,

dans l'Angleterre

Edwardienne,

les femmes

n'en ont toujours

pas le droit.

 

Les injustices

qu'elles subissent

ne sont pas entendues

et leurs revendications

sont nombreuses.

 

Il faudra attendre 1928

pour que celles

que l’on surnomme

les suffragettes

obtiennent gain de cause.

 

En dix ans,

grâce à leur farouche détermination,

elles vont faire passer

le Royaume-Uni

du vote censitaire

au suffrage universel,

en redéfinissant totalement

la notion de citoyenneté.

 

Les femmes, traditionnellement

considérées comme inférieures,

et écartées des affaires politiques,

peuvent désormais s’exprimer

au même titre que les hommes.

 

 

 

 

Combat pour l'égalité

 

Ce film retrace

l’histoire de cette révolution

en se penchant

sur le parcours de cinq femmes

qui ont consacré

leur vie à ce combat

pour l’égalité et la justice.

 

Certaines ont prôné

la désobéissance civile

ou le lobbying

auprès des parlementaires.

 

D’autres ont opté

pour la provocation

et l’action violente,

même si cela devait

les conduire

en prison ou à la mort.

 

Quel que soit

le choix des armes,

c’est grâce à

leur acharnement,

à leur sens politique aigu

et à des stratégies

d’une grande modernité

qu’elles ont

finalement remporté

cette bataille

contre le gouvernement.

Sylvia Pankhurst

was an accomplished artist

who used her skills

to compliment

the suffragette cause.

 

A co-founder of the WSPU

with her mother and sisters,

she designed banners, badges

and posters for the Cause.

 

Sylvia

was a committed socialist

who increasingly

identifying herself

with working class women.

 

She came into conflict

with Christabel

about the aims

and methods of WSPU

and in 1912,

her East London

Federation of Suffragettes

became a breakaway group.

 

Like her mother and sister,

she was imprisoned many times

but her strong pacifist views

meant that whereas

Emmeline and Christabel

threw themselves

into the war effort in 1914,

Sylvia campaigned passionately

against the war.

 

In the 1920s,

she was a committed communist

and continued to be active

in international politics,

especially in Ethiopia,

until her death in 1960.

Christabel studied law

at Manchester University.

 

After founding the WSPU

with her mother and sisters,

Christabel,

along with fellow

campaigner Annie Kenney,

became the first woman

to be arrested

in the suffrage campaign

in 1905.

 

She was arrested

and imprisoned

many times more and,

at one of her trials,

she called Lloyd George

and Gladstone as witnesses.

 

Christabel

believed passionately

in order and discipline

within the movement.

 

This resulted

in disagreements

and eventual splits

in the WSPU.

 

In 1912,

threatened

with arrest for conspiracy,

she fled to France

but still managed

to direct the action

from across the water.

 

After the war,

she was one

of the first women

to stand as an MP,

although she failed

to get elected.

Annie and her sisters

went to a meeting in Oldham

where Christabel Pankhurst

spoke about voting rights

Annie was so inspired

that she was soon organising

and speaking at meetings,

and joined the Women’s

Social and Political Union (WSPU)

which Christabel had recently

helped form.

Suffragette hunger strikes

 

on 5 July 1909,

the imprisoned suffragette

Marion Wallace Dunlop

[1864-1942],

a sculptor and illustrator,

went on hunger strike.

 

A member of the Women's

Social and Political Union (WSPU),

founded by Emmeline Pankhurst

in 1903 to campaign

for the parliamentary vote

for women,

she had been sent

to Holloway prison

for printing an extract

from the bill of rights

on the wall

of St Stephen's Hall

in the House of Commons.

 

In her second

division cell,

Wallace Dunlop

refused all food

as a protest against

the unwillingness

of the authorities

to recognise her

as a political prisoner,

and thus entitled

to be placed

in the first division

where inmates

enjoyed certain privileges.

 

Her hunger strike,

she claimed,

was "a matter of principle,

not only for my own sake

but for the sake of others

who may come after me …

refusing all food

until this matter

is settled

to my satisfaction".

 

After three

and a half days of fasting,

she was released.

In 1889,

Emmeline founded

the Women's

Franchise League,

which fought to allow

married women

to vote

in local elections.

 

In October 1903,

she helped found

the more militant

Women's Social

and Political Union

(WSPU)

- an organisation

that gained

much notoriety

for its activities

and whose members

were the first

to be christened

'suffragettes'.

 

Emmeline's daughters

Christabel and Sylvia

were both active

in the cause.

 

British politicians,

press and public

were astonished

by the demonstrations,

window smashing,

arson

and hunger strikes

of the suffragettes.

 

In 1913,

WSPU member

Emily Davison

was killed

when she threw herself

under the king's horse

at the Derby

as a protest

at the government's

continued failure

to grant women

the right to vote.

 

[ . . . ]

 

In 1918,

the Representation

of the People Act

gave voting rights

to women over 30.

 

Emmeline died

on 14 June 1928,

shortly after women

were granted

equal voting rights

with men (at 21).
