The big question Who should have pride of place in the
* Women's Suffrage Hall of Fame?
*
In 1918 the Representation of the People Act gave the vote to some women. A number of different groups contributed to this achievement:
*
* * The militant WSPU (often called Suffragettes)
* * The moderate NUWSS (often called Suffragists) and a range of organisations linked to them
* * Women workers in the Great War
*
* * *
* * *
*

Your task in this Big Question is to decide which groups contributed most effectively to achieving the vote for women in 1918. You will need to organise your work into two stages:

*
* * *
 
stage 1
* Research
* *
* * * Research the case studies in this Gallery and decide which groups made the most important contributions *
* * * Look for evidence of the importance of each group in terms of the campaign for the vote *
* * * Also, look out for evidence about the combined effect of actions by suffrage campaigners (eg women war workers combined with the NUWSS pushing for the vote during the war) *
* * * The research table will help you record what you find out. You can print it out and write on it, or even enlarge it to A3 on a photocopier to give you plenty of space to work. Or, you can download it as a Word file and record what you find out that way. *
*
stage 2
* Online exhibition - Women's Suffrage Hall of Fame
* *
* * * When you have finished your research, you can plan an online exhibition. It will be a Women's Suffrage Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame has 9 exhibits in it. Each will contain a source from case studies 1-4 in this Gallery and a caption written by you explaining what the source shows. *
* * * If you want to save your work and view the exhibition you have created, please log in. You can create an exhibition without logging in, but your work won't be saved. *
