Flora Drummond addressing a meeting in Trafalgar Square. Flora Drummond addressed a mass-meeting in Trafalgar Square on 11 October 1908. Flora urged militant suffragettes to 'rush' the House of Commons, and was arrested. Since 1905 Flora had been a prominent member of the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU). In 1906 she moved from Scotland to London to work as a salaried organiser of the union. A key speaker in the movement, Drummond also earned herself the nickname 'General' for riding a horse at the head of WSPU processions dressed in epaulettes and a peaked cap. Her militant activity led to her being arrested nine times.
