In 1910 composer Ethel Smythe joins the union, writing its anthem The March of the Women though the Pankhursts are more concerned with Asquith's rejection of the Conciliation Bill, which would offer limited female suffrage. As a result they embark upon a more aggressive campaign of window smashing and sabotage. Mrs Pankhurst and the Pethick-Lawrences are jailed and Christabel escapes to France, from where she plans a greater degree of militancy, to the dismay of the more moderate Sylvia and Mr and Mrs Pethick-Lawrence.- Written by don @ minifie-1
