Votes For Women (TOP7)

This CD comprises original recordings related to the role of women and votes for women. Music Hall songs of the time give a great insight into the public attitude towards women at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth century. Whilst the role of the downtrodden husband had always been a feature of these songs, the coming of the suffragette movement produced some strong reactions. From the speech by Christabel Pankhurst, through to the role of women during the Great War and the 1929 election, this CD traces the development of universal suffrage.
