2 VOTES FOR WOMEN:1850s-1928 How to Plan and Structure a “Women….” Essay

3 Introduction ► Set in context: depending on your question, have a start date (1850s?) and a finish date (Could be 1814, 1918 or 1928). Remember to adjust your information accordingly. ► Mention and Answer your question: eg “There were many reasons why women were enfranchised…” or “ The activities of women did help raise awareness, but….” ► Define terms if necessary eg “militant”, “franchise” ► Give Examples of other factors, if appropriate.

4 These intro sentences are jumbled up. Put them in the correct/best order for a “Why did women get the vote in ?” type essay. ► However, in 1918,women 30 and over, with additional qualifications of property or education, were enfranchised. ► There were a number of reasons why women were given the vote in June 1918, only one of which was recognition of their contribution during the Great War. Others would include the effectiveness of the Suffragist campaign and the recognition of the fact that many women were now in the professions, local government and paying taxes. ► In the 1850s women were regarded as physically and mentally inferior to men, and seemed very far away from gaining the right of suffrage.

5 Do you need a “situation in 1850” paragraph? ► It depends on the essay title! ► It may be enough to point out in your intro that women had made significant gains in the fields of education, law and employment from 1850 and so gaining political rights was the next logical step in their struggle. ► Or you may have to explain, in a separate paragraph, the situation in 1850 and give more detail about it.

6 Main Body ► The main part of your essay should follow a CHRONOLOGICAL structure, in which there are certain clear phases/stages, which should themselves be divided into different paragraphs. ► Be careful: if it’s a “How important was the war….?” question you STILL need to include the pre-war campaigns and developments. You can’t just launch straight into the war!

7 Chronological Structure ► N.U.W.S.S up to 1910( Conciliation Bills) (methods, effectiveness, impact). (methods, effectiveness, impact). ► W.S.P.U up to 1910(methods, effectiveness, impact). ► Conciliation Bills & outcome. ► Reactions of N.U.W.S.S./ W.S.P.U. ► Situation in 1914 (inc. sub-conclusion)

8 The Great War ► Reactions of N.U.W.S.S / W.S.P.U to outbreak. ► “List of Seven”. Make clear in a sub-conclusion that these points are at or around the time of the war but not all strictly related to the war itself. Make clear in a sub-conclusion that these points are at or around the time of the war but not all strictly related to the war itself. ► You need to include the fact that (some) women were given the vote in June, 1918, even if this seems like story-telling.

9 The end??? ► Depending on your essay title ie it refers to 1918, or women being enfranchised, you may now be ready to write your overall conclusion. ► If your essay title refers to 1928, you will need another paragraph to cover the post- war period up to the Equal Franchise Act. (And including explanation of what the Act did as well as a sensible sub-conclusion.)

10 The End! ►T►T►T►The overall conclusion should NOT repeat or include very specific references to actions, events or Acts. It is a BROAD, OVERALL response to the essay question as a whole….you’ve already gone into detail in your “main body”. ►T►T►T►The conclusion should follow S.M.A.D.E guidelines, but not use the exact wording of your intro. Reword and elaborate. Use a relevant quotation if you can. (Historiography – remember, you can use this at any point in your essay. Markers love historiography!)

11 Historiography ► “Their cause has marched backwards.” W.S. Churchill. ► “War smoothed the way for democracy.” A.J.P. Taylor ► “To say that war brought votes for women is to make a very crude generalisation, yet one which contains an essential truth.” A. Marwick ► “Women proved by their work that they deserved the vote equally with men. Thus their war efforts succeeded where the suffragette campaign had failed.” J. Ray ► “After the turn of the century, a majority of members of parliament supported women’s suffrage in one form or another…” M. Pugh ► Militant tactics “…alienated, if only temporarily, much of the support built up amongst politicians…” M. Pugh ► “Let us show ourselves worthy of citizenship whether our claim to it be recognised or not.” Millicent Fawcett

12 These sentences could be used in a “How effective were….?” conclusion. Rearrange to best effect. The enfranchisement of women in June, 1918 was, therefore, due to both the raising of awareness of the campaigning organisations and the wartime factors, only some of which were directly connected to the war itself.The enfranchisement of women in June, 1918 was, therefore, due to both the raising of awareness of the campaigning organisations and the wartime factors, only some of which were directly connected to the war itself. When the N.U.W.S.S, was founded in 1897, it built on changes for women already achieved in various areas of society and both it and the W.S.P.U. aimed to enfranchise women.When the N.U.W.S.S, was founded in 1897, it built on changes for women already achieved in various areas of society and both it and the W.S.P.U. aimed to enfranchise women. The success of their campaigns was limited, in that the actions of the Suffragettes, in particular, damaged their effectiveness.The success of their campaigns was limited, in that the actions of the Suffragettes, in particular, damaged their effectiveness.

The two main women’ rights movements were certainly effective in gaining publicity for and raising awareness about their cause.The two main women’ rights movements were certainly effective in gaining publicity for and raising awareness about their cause.
