      Suffragettes ~ 1911 - thank goodness for these brave women! Any woman who does not exercise her right to vote clearly does not understand history nor do they appreciate the persecution that these women endured. It is our duty as citizens to pay attention to issues and vote!

      Votes For Women... Crazy to think this was the case in our free country. Really makes you wonder why people don't vote in this modern day when these women went through what they did for that very same expression of freedom!

      The Suffragettes were movements for women's suffrage in the United Kingdom. Suffrage means the right to vote. They wanted to be involved in the running of the country and they wanted to be treated as equals to men. At first the movements started with peaceful protests, but they progressed to acts of extreme civil disobedience. Garvery.N, Nlg Steampunk (21.10.13). The Suffragettes: Votes for Women

    A forgotten profession: In the days before alarm clocks were widely affordable, people like Mary Smith of Brenton Street were employed to rouse sleeping people in the early hours of the morning. They were commonly known as ‘knocker-ups’ or ‘knocker-uppers’. Mrs. Smith was paid sixpence a week to shoot dried peas at market workers’ windows in Limehouse Fields, London.

    “Mad as a hatter” In 18th and 19th century England mercury was used in the production of felt, which was used in the manufacturing of hats common of the time. People who worked in these hat factories were exposed daily to trace amounts of the metal, which accumulated within their bodies over time, causing some workers to develop dementia caused by mercury poisoning. Thus the phrase “Mad as a Hatter” became popular as a way to refer to someone who was perceived as insane.
