What Made Suffragettes Laugh?

What made suffragettes laugh? It’s a question we’ve been musing on since learning that BBC4 is going to be broadcasting a sitcom about a deputation (we think that’s the proper collective noun) of suffragettes. All will be revealed on Thursday night!

Being a curious bunch, we did a combination keyword search in the Archive on ‘suffragettes’ and ‘laughter’. Looking at the search results, they seemed to create a lot of laughter when they were appearing before various judges. Hmm. Somebody must have forgotten to tell them that, when in court, it’s the judge who makes all the jokes – and the correct response is to laugh in a polite manner at his jokes.
