STARTER: Use the evidence to construct an argument about whether the violence of the Suffragettes helped women gain the vote.
Conciliation Bills designed to give women the vote failed in Parliament in 1910,1911 and 1912.
"Haven’t the Suffragettes the sense to see that the very worst way of campaigning for the vote is to try and intimidate a man into giving them what he would gladly give otherwise?"
David Lloyd George (Chancellor of the Exchequer), speaking in 1913.
"The middle-class activists of the much larger NUWSS were dismayed to see the effects if the hard work jeopardised by the suffragette tactics; even stringer was the disgust of working class suffragists…. Nothing alienated women from the suffragettes more than the insistence on violence."
