March 1912 Mary Gawthorpe
resigned her co-editorship of The Freewoman
after DM published there her explicit attack on the WSPU
, "A Militant Psychology". Gawthorpe had disagreed with Marsden's position for some time.
September 1912 The Freewoman
was banned from W. H. Smith
shops because "the nature of certain articles which have been appearing lately are such as to render the paper unsuitable to be exposed on the bookstalls for general sale."
