I want more than votes for women. I want somebody decent for women to vote for!' The year is 1911. The suffragettes are breaking the law by boycotting the census: ‘If women don’t count, neither shall they be counted’. Yet this is not a story of women united in rebellion, but of the internal struggles faced by the working class within the suffrage movement.
