Me, myself and English: "The Suffragettes"
Women wanted the vote
-19th-20th century,

-Women claimed
between men and women.

-After ten years and thanks
to the determination of
some women, they obtained the
universal suffrage.

Firstly : "the suffragists", in peaceful ways
, a first group called “the suffragists” tried to obtain the vote for women.

- Peaceful movement led by a woman ;
Millicent Garrett Fawcett
. “if women have to obey the laws, they have to have the right to participate in their creation”.

- “
National Union of Women's Suffrage
” (NUWS).

- They achieved very little.

The first world war changed the minds
1914 first world war
, women replaced men in their jobs .
After the war, vote for women +30 years old.

the universal suffrage
: every man and every woman
over 21 years
can vote.
--> consecration for the suffragettes and previous trends but also for all women of the United Kingdom.

- U.K. is the
eight country
to give the right to vote to women. (In Belgium it was in 1949).

trends (demonstrations, windows broken, churches vandalised, scandal at parliament, etc.)

- Led by
Emmeline Pankhurst
. She and her daughters Christabel and Sylvia Pankhurst create :
“the Women's Social and Political Union” (WSPU)

- repression, jail --> hunger stike. They were
filled up
, tortured.
Government accused of harming women -->

- Why it's so important to me,
what's my opinion?
- What's the link with
English-speaking culture?

-And you, what do you think about that?
Do you think that minimizing the women is justified?
Do you find normal that such a fight is necessary to guarantee the women the same rights as men?
Emmeline, Christabel and Sylvia Pankhurst
