Subject & Keywords History; politics; victorian labour movement; BOAPROTEST
Description Bradlaugh was a co-founder of the National Secular Society and Editor of the National Reformer. He is also responsible for the creation of a secular oath for politicians in the 19th century. His fight for the secular oath was made possible by the sustained support of voters in Northampton. Bradlaugh was a keen supporter of Indian Home Rule, and access to birth control, who also helped the Fenians to draft their Manifesto. These papers' main focus is on his fight for a secular parliamentary oath. The battle of the oath continued over five years and four by-elections, before he was sworn-in and took his seat in 1886. These records also include papers from Hypatia Bradlaugh Bonner, the only one of Bradlaugh's children to outlive her father. Loyal to her father, she collected records of his work and fought to protect his legacy. Bonner also actively campaigned against the Boer War and the arms race prior to the First World War.
