Postcard with photograph of a group carrying a large banner which reads 'National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies Land's End to London'.
The NUWSS was formed in 1896 with the aim of campaigning for women's suffrage and had federations throughout the UK and Ireland. In summer 1913 the NUWSS organised a pilgrimage to show the government via non-militant action how many women wanted the vote. Different groups travelled by foot, bicycle or horse along routes which covered the whole of England, holding suffragette meetings along the way. Starting on 18 June, the South Western, West of England and Surrey, Sussex and Hants Federations traveled from Lands End to London. Around 50,000 women, half the membership of the NUWSS, finally gathered in Hyde Park for a meeting on 29 July.
