1. A poster advertising the weekly suffragette newspaper Votes for Women (1909). Hilda Dallas.

    Around 1905, the militant campaign began with the formation of the Women’s Social and Political Union. In 1918 the Representation of the People Act 1918 was passed, enfranchising women over the age of 30 who met minimum property qualifications. The Representation of the People Act 1928 extended the voting franchise to all women over the age of 21.
