(external website)

The names Charlotte Bronte and Emily Bronte above the white rose of Yorkshire. Probably created for the marches through London in June 1908.

On Saturday 13th June 1908 there was a march organised by the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies (NUWSS) to the Albert Hall. A march to Hyde Park was held on Sunday, 21st June 1908, organised by the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU), with well-known suffragists heading the procession. One small section, a group of women writers, carried a banner with the motto "Litera Scripta Manet" and the arms of the Scriveners' Company. Other banners in this section honoured Jane Austen, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Charlotte Bronte and George Eliot. This was followed by a "Monster Meeting" at Hyde Park attended by over 300,000 people.
