Trying to track down some songs from the suffragette movement, to include in a workshop celebrating the 100th anniversary of some women being given the vote in The UK in 1918.
Hoping you can help!

A few years ago I was involved in a production about the Suffragettes, The Fawcett Society were a really great help, particularly regarding songs.On one occasion a guy sang one down the phone to see if it would be what we wanted.

Not a song, but a suitable poem to which someone may be able to suggest a tune. (tune challenge???)

A long time ago (30 years?) there was a television series, probably from the BBC, but PBS broadcast in the U.S., entitled SHOULDER TO SHOULDER,
about the U.K. suffragettes, and a number of songs were featured, particularly as sung in prisons where the marchers were held. One was
"The march of the women," from which the series took its name.
Lots of stuff on YouTube, e.g.:

Definite vote (no pun!) for March of the Women! Very stirring song, but unless you've got lots of high sopranos, drop the key down a fourth or fifth from the YouTube key! My friend and I did it last year during a concert re the various pioneering and campaigning women of Edinburgh.
