ABOUT ALICE HAWKINS
Alice Hawkins (Stafford, 1863 - Leicester, 1946) was a leading English suffragette among the boot and shoe machinists of Leicester.
She went to prison five times for acts committed as part of the Women’s Social and Political Union militant campaign.
Her husband Alfred Hawkins was also an active suffragette and received £100 when his kneecap was fractured as he was ejected
from a meeting in Bradford.
In 2018 a statue of Alice was unveiled in Leicester Market Square.
