Few historical milestones paint a clearer picture of progress than women’s winning of the vote. Yet, as recently as a century ago, women’s suffrage was tenaciously opposed, not least by women themselves. The appeals both for and against suffrage over the course of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries were conducted through the medium of print. By the early twentieth century, the British literary field was awash with suffrage fiction, drama and short-stories, a choice sample of which you can find in these volumes.
