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.
