Votes for Women
This title introduces the key figures involved in the women's suffrage movement and goes on to consider the arguments advanced by those who supported and those who opposed votes for women (in particluar, the response of men to the campaigns). The narrative also highlights the pace and extent of suffragist and suffragette activity, and assesses their contribution to the First World War and the extent to which women gained the vote as a result of their efforts during the conflict.
