Case Study*Moderates
*
In this case study you are going to study the role of the moderate women's movement, the NUWSS, and their allies in getting the vote for women in 1918. The NUWSS were led by Millicent Fawcett and were usually known as the Suffragists.
*
Some historians believed the work of the moderates was less spectacular than the action of the militants, but it was more effective in the longer term. In this case study you are going to study a number of sources from the time and see whether you agree.
