The Good Fight
A CHICAGO PREMIERE FROM BABES WITH BLADES THEATRE COMPANY!

By Anne Bertram

Director: Elizabeth Lovelady
Violence Design: Gaby Labotka

The Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU), led by Emmeline Pankhurst and her daughter Christabel, was the primary militant group pushing for women's suffrage in the United Kingdom. Under the slogan "Deeds, not words," the WSPU advocated targeting property as a form of protest, from smashing shop windows to burning and bombing buildings. Imprisoned WSPU members - including Emmeline Pankhurst - launched hunger strikes, which were initially countered by the authorities with force-feeding; later the government introduced the Cat and Mouse Act, under which starving suffragettes were released, only to be re-imprisoned once regaining their health.

To defend their leaders and comrades, the WSPU built "The Bodyguard" - an all-female security team, trained in jiu-jitsu - and THE GOOD FIGHT began.
