It was "Snobbery with Violence" by M C Beaton - the suffragettes were only mentioned briefly at the beginning, when the heroine gets into a bit of trouble for supporting them. They're by no means the main point of the story though, just really appear briefly to show that the heroine is a spirited gal with a mind of her own.

Yep Vanessa, Venice was fab but sweltering.

I'm in Popular Without in 1642 looking for my 'father', who rescued me from a plague pit as a baby, to find out the history behind my birth.

An alternative modern UK where Britain never had an empire and Henry VIII didn't divorce from the Catholic church.
