Frances McPhun

Frances McPhun, 1876-1960

“I am Frances McPhun. I graduated with an MA in Political Economy from Glasgow University where my sister Margaret and I were both members of the University’s suffrage union. I was involved in organising The Pageant of Famous Scottish Women held in Edinburgh in 1909. In 1912, Margaret and I were arrested for smashing windows in London. We were sent to Holloway Prison, where we went on hunger strike.”

Researched by GWL and read by Margaret Manley.
