North Herts Undaunted: The Fight for the Vote,’ tells the stories of a number of high profile suffragettes from North Hertfordshire who led the way on the Votes for Women campaign at the turn of the last century.

Suffragette Mrs Elizabeth Impey of Hitchin features prominently in the exhibition. She was arrested for ‘disorderly conduct’ in 1907 for walking three abreast outside Parliament. Letchworth’s Jane Short broke windows of both Baldock and Hitchin Post Offices and was later imprisoned for arson, while Lady Constance Lytton of Knebworth House was force fed so harshly that her health never recovered. Items on display include Mrs Impey’s ‘Votes for Women’ rosette and scarf, her autograph book signed by famous suffragettes such as Christabel Pankhurst, Annie Kenney and Millicent Fawcett, and her Holloway badge and letters.

The exhibition is part of a Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) partnership project with Stevenage Museum, the Garden City Collection and Knebworth House
