The National Women’s Social and Political Union.

Letter 2004c2


I thought I’d share a document (in fact several) which have been shown to me in my research and discussions around feminism. I’ve decided to let these two letters from Elsie Victoria Mackenzie speak for themselves; although I have scanned one the original letters, the other letter has been transcribed and is an accompaniment to the photocopied original.

Letter from Barry

Letter to Nance

Transcript of letter to Nance

There are a lot of things that come out of Elsie’s words here, written as they were to the grandmother of a friend of mine. I don’t propose to add anything to them. For information the N.W.H is the North Western Fever Hospital
