British women trade unionists on strike at Bryant & May, 1888
British women trade unionists on strike at Bryant & May, 1888

The matchwomen who were employed by Bryant and May went on strike over their working conditions in 1888. Their strike is historically significant due to the fact that it was led by working class women, many of whom were immigrants from Ireland. The year of the strike and the women's relationship to London dock workers have also led to the suggestion that their strike may in fact mark the beginning of New Unionism. These papers combine business records from Bryant and May with press coverage of the strike and photographs of the women who were involved.

Scottish women's suffrage movement, 1902-1933
Scottish women's suffrage movement, 1902-1933

The Glasgow and West of Scotland Society for Women's Suffrage was a non-militant suffrage society. Their work continued after that of the many militant societies who ceased campaigning in 1918. With close ties to the Scottish Council for Women's Trades, these women were of a certain social class. They attracted a number of Liberal Lord Provosts and Town Councillors, as well as MPs. The Society's emphasis was upon fundraising, this usually involved flag days and whist drives. When the Society was wound-down in 1933, it was due to a lack of funds and former members would meet at the Queen Margaret Union in the University until the 1960s.
