ETHEL MARY SMYTH
She signs and dates this card in 1922, the year that she was made a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire
Signature: "Ethel Smyth/DBE [illegible]/30 Jany 1922". 3½x2¼ cardstock. Smyth (1858-1944, born in London, England) was an English composer and leader of women's suffrage. She studied music in Leipzig, Saxony, Germany and started her musical career writing traditional works like chamber pieces and operas, including her most well-known opera The Wreckers. She joined the Women's Social and Political Union (WPSU) in 1910 and gave up music for two years to devote herself to getting women the right to vote. Smyth wrote the music for the suffrage anthem The March of the Women, with words by Cicely Hamilton. The WPSU was a militant suffrage group, and Smyth served two months in prison for breaking the windows of anti-suffrage politicians with 108 other WPSU members. She was made a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1922. Lightly toned and foxed. Discolored at top and right end, possibly from mounting. Otherwise, fine condition.
