Suffragette City

Westendreport has an interesting look at the Glasgow Botanics Bomb, described as “a dastardly attempt […] to blow up the Kibble Palace in the Botanic Gardens by means of bombs” planted by members of the woman’s suffrage movement after enjoying some cake and champagne in the grounds!

This also touches on the split made by the Glasgow suffragettes away from those groups further south due to Glasgow’s woman taking a strong anti-war stance, something we should keep in mind this year as the strong resistance to WW1 is minimised or ignored.
