Propaganda table-game 'Pank-a-Squith'. The suffrage movement produced toys and games to popularise its ideas and activities. The 'Pank-a-Squith' board game was first advertised in Votes for Women on 22 October 1909. The game depicts the suffragettes' struggle with Prime Minister Herbert Asquith and the Liberal government. By rolling the dice, players attempt to move a suffragette figure from her home to the Houses of Parliament, her course being hindered by a number of obstructions along the way. The game was distributed and sold through the network of high-street shops run by the Women's Social and Political Union.
