Dorothy Jewson – Suffragette and Socialist is the biography of a remarkable and determined Norwich suffragette, socialist, city councillor and one of Britain’s first female Members of Parliament. Born of a Norwich business family in 1884 and educated at Norwich High School for Girls, it was at Girton College, Cambridge that her lifelong commitment to socialism and feminism was established. She fought in the battle to establish votes for women, being one of the first Norwich members of Emmeline Pankhurst’s Women’s Social and Political Union and went on through life committed to working for the disadvantaged through direct action in running a workshop in the First World War, through local and national politics and through Norwich City Council as it developed amenities in the city between the wars.
