WOMEN'S RIGHTS
New issue of British Politics Review!

“Votes for Women” was a chief theme in the British late nineteenth-century debate on women’s role in society. In this issue of British Politics Review, we celebrate the introduction of a female franchise in the UK in 1918 with a series of articles addressing different aspects of women’s rights in Britain, then and now.

Martin Pugh looks at the Representation of the People Act itself, and the immediate circumstances which led to the passing of the Act. Diane Atkinson examines the suffragette movement which spearheaded the campaign for a female franchise. Susan R. Grayzel addresses the question of the impact World War 1 had on the lives of British women. Adrian Bingham looks at the female vote in the period after World War 2. Laura Beers discusses feminist responses to Margaret Thatcher.
