Women's Suffrage and Hull Fishermens' Memorial

Today marked a significant point regarding the commemoration of the loss of three HULL trawlers within a short time of each other. It resulted in many safety improvements for those involved in this hazardous life at sea. I like to think of the efforts of the headscarf housewives, in particular Lillian Belocca who championed the fishermens' cause.
At this time of remembrance and also the 100th anniversary of women getting the vote I thought this illustration was apposite.
