1 The Government at the time
was reluctant to give women
the vote so 2 groups were set
up to support the campaign of
'votes for women', these
1.1 Suffragettes (Violent)
1.1.1 Since Millicent Fawcetts way of non
violent protest was taking so long many
women became angry and this meant
that after a while in 1903 the Womens
Social and Political Union (WSPU) was
founded by Emmeline Parkhurst and her
daughters Christabel and Sylvia. The
WSPU became better known as the
Suffragetttes. Members of the
Suffragettes were prepared to use
violence to get what they wanted.
22.214.171.124 However it took until 1905 for the Suffargettes to
become properly violent, it was in 1905 that
Christabel Parkhurst and Annie Kennedy
interrupted a political meeting in which they
asked two politicians, Winston Churchill and Sir
Edward Grey if they thought Women should get
the vote, neither man replied. The two women
then got a banner out which said 'VOTES FOR
1.2 Suffagists (Non-Violent)
1.2.1 TheSuffragists wanted the
right for women to vote.
The campaign really started
in 1897 when Millicent
Fawcett founded the
National Union of Women's
(NUWSS), or Suffragists.
126.96.36.199 Millicent Fawcett believed
in non-violent protest as
she believd any violence
would make men think
women couldn't be trusted
with the vote.
2 The main problem Women had was the
fact that men had a stereo typical images
of what a women actually cares about, this
is highlighted in the cartoon, 'A Women's
2.1 However this stereotype soon changed after the war,
this is because women had to do the jobs men did
however the men went to fight on the front line so
women became, Framers, arms makers and genereally
looked after the country.
3 Some of the most compelling reasons
not to give women the vote are as
follows. From most important to least
3.1 Men and Women have different
responsibilities. Women are home makers
and mothers. Its the role of men to debate
and make difficult decisions.
3.1.1 Queen Victoria's quote from the time.
188.8.131.52 Women do not fight for
our country in war so why
should they decide if we go
to war or not?
184.108.40.206.1 Its only
for the vote.
220.127.116.11.1.1 If you give the vote to
Women that would mean
giving the vote to all men,
including the Rif Raf.
