Women Against the Vote

Female Anti-Suffragism in Britain

Julia Bush

British women who resisted their own enfranchisement were ridiculed by the suffragists and have since been neglected by historians. Yet these women, together with the millions whose indifference reinforced the opposition case, claimed to form a majority of the female public on the eve of the First World War. Julia Bush rediscovers the history of female anti-suffragism in Britain, providing new perspectives on the campaigns both for and against the vote.
