The Right of the Subjects flyer
by Jude Starling
During their years of active campaigning, the suffragettes would often choose the days on which Parliament reconvened after a recess to hold their own Women’s Parliaments and march on Westminster. As such, while I was deciding when to release The Right of the Subjects I thought that a similar date would be an apt choice, and this flyer was based on those handed out by the WSPU in order to promote their demonstrations, although given that I don’t wish to achieve anything other than the bringing of my book to the attentions of those who’ll enjoy it I had to think very carefully about the wording when I was composing it! In the end I sought the advice of a solicitor (thank you again, Claire-Louise!) who confirmed that my flyer can’t legally be taken as evidence of any unlawful intentions, so I’m sharing it now. Please feel free to do likewise if you wish.
