DescriptionContentsReviews

This collection of essays systematically explores how a sample of political groupings not founded on suffrage reacted and accommodated the issue of suffrage within their official discourses and structures. The volume leads to the heart and core of suffragism while examining the dynamics and versatilities of the Edwardian political fabric.

  • ‘This is a book that confirms the history of suffrage as a dynamic and challenging field of enquiry which merits attention from all historians of modern British politics. It broadens and deepens our knowledge and appreciation of suffrage activism, highlighting the spectrum of support for female suffrage across and through political and non-political organisations. Suffrage Outside Suffragism brings together a distinguished group of scholars to cast a searching light over the history of suffrage activism and provide a fillip to historians of women, feminism, and politics. It pushes the boundaries of suffrage history, demonstrating how suffrage activity pervaded the politics and culture of Edwardian Britain beyond the suffrage societies themselves’
    – Professor Lynn Abrams, University of Glasgow
