March of the Women,

EDITORS COMMENTS
also known as the "Suffragette Song Anthem," is a powerful musical composition that encapsulates the spirit and determination of the suffragette movement in early 20th century Britain. The words and music were composed by the groundbreaking English composer Ethel Smyth in 1911, and the lyrics were penned by Cicely Hamilton. Dedicated to the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU), this anthem was written during a pivotal moment in the fight for women's rights and suffrage. The image shows a group of determined suffragettes, shoulder to shoulder and friend to friend, as they march forward with unwavering resolve. The date of 1911 is etched into the historical record, marking a significant year in the suffrage movement. The lyrics of "March of the Women" echo the sentiment of unity and perseverance, with the lines "March, march, many as one, shoulder to shoulder, friend to friend." Ethel Smyth, a pioneering figure in the classical music world, composed this anthem as a rallying cry for women's suffrage. Her innovative and bold approach to music made her a trailblazer in her field, and her dedication to the cause of women's rights further solidified her place in history. Cicely Hamilton, a playwright and suffragette, penned the lyrics to the anthem, adding powerful words to the musical composition. The "March of the Women" anthem became a symbol of the suffragette movement, inspiring and uniting women as they fought for their right to vote. This image serves as a poignant reminder of the courage and determination of the suffragettes, and the important role that music played in their struggle for equality.
