Constance Maud, By (artist) Scarlett Rickard


Constance Maud was at the heart of the British campaign for women’s votes. Her novel No Surrender was published at the height of that struggle and used as a persuasive tool by suffragists. Hailed by Emily WildingDavison as “a book which breathes the very spirit of our Women’s Movement”, the fastpaced story interweaves the lives of women from all classes working together to bring about change. Our hero Jenny is a small but fierce Lancashire textile mill worker who puts principle before everything. No Surrender is sometimes funny, sometimes violent, but always exciting and authentic. It is highly regarded as an important document of the arguments for and against extending votes to women, for its witty storytelling and for an unflinching depiction of the rapid escalation of violence encountered by the women involved. In this faithful graphic adaptation, creators Scarlett and Sophie Rickard craft a compelling fiction that paints a comprehensive picture of social, political, economic and cultural life in early 20thcentury Britain that is still acutely relevant today. The graphic format is the embodiment of the suffrage rallycry of “Deeds not Words” and this book is the perfect sistervolume to their stunning adaptation of the socialist classic The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists.
