The Women's Suffrage Movement in Britain and Ireland : A Regional Survey Hardback


In this comprehensive study, Elizabeth Crawford provides the first survey of women's suffrage campaigns across the British Isles and Ireland, focusing on local campaigns and activists.

Divided into thirteen sections covering the regions of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland, this book gives a unique geographical dimension to debates on the suffrage campaign of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuriesThrough a study of the grass-roots activists involved in the movement, Crawford provides a counter to studies that have focused on the politics and personalities that dominated at a national level, and reveals that, far from providing merely passive backing to the cause, women in the regions were engaged in the movement as active participants Including a thorough inventory of archival sources and extensive bibliographical and biographical references for each region, including the addresses of campaigners, this guide is essential for researchers, scholars, local historians and students alike.
