Subject: RE: Anyone watching My Son Jack?
McGrath is right in saying that in 1914, many of the Suffragettes decided to postpone their struggle for equal rights for the duration of the War. A small number, however, stood out against militarism and withheld their taxes, attended international peace conferences and at considerable personal loss and risk, took every opportunity to bring the War to an end - among them Cecil Sharp's sister, Evelyn. Not many people know that.
