This long video from YouTube has great high-quality archival footage. The book about suffragette Princess Sophia is now in paperback from Bloomsbury. The play “Princess Suffragette” will be performed by the London Grey & Green Theatre Company from February 22-26, 2017. This contemporary (re)telling of Princess Sophia Duleep Singh’s journey, from her aristocratic upbringing as the daughter of an exiled Maharajah, to her political awakening as the first British-Asian suffragette that is said to be an “inventive new play about identity, risk and heart, and twist our notions of feminism as well as define moments of British and Indian history, through the eyes of an extraordinary woman.”

A good read! Highly recommended, not only for the suffrage movement in England and Princess Sophia’s participation in it, but also her ties to India and the perspective of a young woman in exile in London.
