The term "Jujitsuffragettes" was coined by the editors of Health and Strength Magazine circa 1910, to
describe members of the militant Suffragette movement who studied the martial art of bartitsu as a means of self defense and who served as the bodyguards for the leaders of the suffragette movement (such as Emily Pankhurst), against the police and violent anti-Suffrage mobs.
