"The Suffragette Fellowship Collection is an extremely valuable source of information relating to the militant aspect of women's fight for the vote. It is particularly useful for the papers and information it contains on some of the lesser known women of the movement and on the Women's Freedom League." -- Margaret Barrow, Author of Women 1870-1928 (London, 1981)
