Overview

This traces the British women's suffrage campaign from its origins in the 1860s to the achievement of equal suffrage in 1928. It explains why women's suffrage was such a contentious issue, and how women gained the vote despite opponents' fears it would undermine gender boundaries. The book also focuses on the actions of reformers and their opponents, provides selections from documents illustrating the ideological conflict and suggests ways in which ethnic difference caused the campaign in Scotland and Wales to differ from the one in England.
