Abstract

Dawn Langan Teele writes that although the recent film Suffragette bucks the elite perspective of the suffrage movement, any film which focusses exclusively on the militant wing ignores the key role played by the tens of thousands of non-militant suffragists. Her recent research focusses specifically on the alliance between the nascent Labour Party and the Liberal wing of the suffrage movement which was central to securing women’s inclusion in the 1918 Representation of the People Act.
