The Alice Wheeldon Story: When Conscience Became a Casualty of War
Deirdre and Chloë Mason tell how in 1917 their grandparents and great grandmother were convicted of conspiracy to murder the British PM, David Lloyd George. Activists and feminists, unaware until 1987 of their heritage, Deirdre and Chloë uncovered blinding prejudice against a woman who opposed War, supported women's suffrage and the right to refuse to bear arms.
