Death in Ten Min­utes: Kitty Mar­ion – Ac­tivist, Ar­son­ist, Suf­fragette

History Revealed - - ON OUR RADAR -

By Fern Rid­dell Hod­der & Stoughton, £20, hard­back, 352 pages

In a year that has al­ready seen a pleas­ingly di­verse range of suf­fragette bi­ogra­phies, this is still a wel­come ad­di­tion. Kitty Mar­ion may not now be as well known as the Pankhursts, but her life – packed with ac­tivism, ar­son and ar­rests – am­ply demon­strates just how rad­i­cal such fig­ures were pre­pared to be in their fight for women’s rights.
