Suffrajitsu.com is your one-stop-shop for all matters Amazonian. Designed as something of a sister site for Bartitsu.org, it includes a comprehensive blog featuring a large (and ever-expanding) catalogue of articles on the suffragette Amazons in both history and fiction.

An alternative history of action, adventure and intrigue!
Taking place during the year 1914, Suffrajitsu recounts the adventures of Miss Persephone Wright (seen above, debating politics with a London bobby) and her elite team of Amazons; a secret society of women trained in Bartitsu, who protect the leaders of the radical women’s rights movement.
Many of the events of the first story are directly based on real history and most of the characters are fictional versions of real people, including:
* the parasol-wielding woman of mystery known only as Miss Sanderson
* the Austrian wrestler and strongwoman Katie “Sandwina” Brumbach
* Flossie Le Mar, the jujitsu-adventuress from far-off New Zealand …
Suffrajitsu is written by Tony Wolf, illustrated by Joao Vieira and published by Jet City Comics. It is part of the Foreworld Saga, a shared-world alternative history series initiated by authors Neal Stephenson and Mark Teppo.
