Fern Riddell

As part of ‘The Sound of Anger’ series, cultural historian Fern Riddell speaks with Thomas Dixon about gender, emotions, and politics. Fern is an expert on the histories of suffragism and sexuality and the author of a biography of the radical suffragette Kitty Marion, called ‘Death In Ten Minutes’. Fern and Thomas debate the meaning of ‘anger’, how it looks and feels, whether it is always expressed in violence, and what place it had in the suffragettes’ struggle.
