The never before told story of radical suffragette Kitty Marion. Historian Fern Riddell finds a hidden diary and uses Kitty's own words to tell the story of her sensational life and explosive actions. History has certainly not forgotten the suffragettes, but Dr Fern Riddell, the historian behind Death in Ten Minutes, argues that we have forgotten the radically violent nature of the movement, which explicitly set out to terrorise the British public to secure the electoral equality we now take for granted. Death in Ten Minutes is an incredible account of the life of Kitty Marion, a little-known suffragette and birth control advocate, based on autobiographical writing by Marion preserved in the Museum of London archive.
