A lone suffragette banner-bearer stands before a crowd assembled for a rally at Hyde Park, c.1909. She wears an 'officials' badge and a suffragette prisoner's medal. Suffragette rallies and demonstrations attracted a mixed crowd comprising both male and female supporters, spectators, the curious and those who just happened to be passing by. Lone female suffragettes living in a male-dominated society often placed themselves in vulnerable positions. Their courage and determination is even more striking when viewed, as here, against the backdrop of large crowds of men, not always sympathetic to the cause.
