Source 31:  Pamphlet - 'Why Women Teachers Break Windows', circa 1912

Pleasance Pendred was an active member of the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU). She was arrested on 28 January 1913 for taking part in a window-breaking campaign mainly targeting government offices around Westminster. She was sentenced to six months in prison in Holloway gaol on 21 February. In this pamphlet, Pleasance made a defence of the militant actions carried out by the suffragettes, including window-breaking.

'Why Women Teachers Break Windows' was first published circa 1912 by the Woman's Press.
