Card Game - The Game of Suffragette
The 'Game of Suffragette' was devised and produced by the Kensington branch of the Women's Social & Political Union. It was announced in the November 1907 issue of the Union's publication, 'Votes for Women'. 'Although it may be recommended as a novel form of propaganda, let it not be thought that there is no fun in it.' The game consisted of sets of cards including 'Broken Promises', 'The Career of the Suffragettes', 'Pie Crust Principles' and 'The Sensational Press'. There are portrait cards and others with line illustrations, each has the 'Haunted House' image, by David Wilson on the reverse. David Wilson, (1873-1935) produced the dark and brooding image of the woman a top the Houses of Parliament for the Daily Chronicle in April 1907. It was then used as the front cover illustration for the first issue of 'Votes for Women' in October 1907. Also includes a copy of the original rules. Date: 1907
