Author: Frank Meeres

One of Norfolk’s best-known local history authors, Frank Meeres, adds greatly to our knowledge and understanding by taking us back to the early years of the 20th century with the biography of a remarkable and determined Norwich suffragette, socialist. city councillor and M.P. With 108 pages and 56 illustrations, Dorothy Jewson – Suffragette and Socialist is an account that will appeal to all those who have an interest in the history of politics and social action, set firmly in the city of Norwich. Born in the city in 1884, Dorothy was a controversial figure from an established business family; she was a pacifist, one of the first female MPs and a tireless worker for the disadvantaged, especially women. After studying at the Norwich High School for Girls and at Girton College, Cambridge, she dedicated her life to socialism and to feminism. Playing an important role in the battle to obtain the vote for women, she was one of the first members of Emmeline Pankhurst’s Women’s Social and Political Union. 

Dorothy’s pacifism led her to oppose the First World War and she went on to become a full-time worker in the women’s trades union movement. Her time in parliament lasted only 10 months but she continued to be active in regional and city politics. Her contribution was always very practical, particularly her work on behalf of the unemployed during her years on Norwich City Council.
