Whipped By The Order Of Queen Victoria

Well, the whipping was not actually ordered, and did not happen. But Queen Victoria wanted to have a notorious suffragette whipped:

“The Queen is most anxious to enlist everyone who can speak or write to join in checking this mad, wicked folly of ‘Woman’s Rights,’ with all its attendant horrors, on which her poor feeble sex is bent, forgetting every sense of womanly feeling and propriety. Lady —– ought to get a GOOD WHIPPING. It is a subject which makes the Queen so furious that she cannot contain herself. God created men and women different–then let them remain each in their own position.”

Thanks to Abel for the historical researches and context he so, er, ably provides.
