Suffrage Journals | Woman Suffrage Memorabilia

Carl,
I assume that you have tried the British Museum and other important English libraries. American libraries do have reference works that indicate where periodicals can be located here, and I assume that there are English equivalents. Check with the research librarian at any large educational institution for help in this regard. It is difficult to find complete runs of some of the English suffrage papers over here apart from Votes for Women. You might also check with Eliabeth Crawford, a wonderful scholar of the English movement, who runs a fascinating website blog called “Women and Her Sphere.” Good luck!

The role of women in Christianity Statements by Christian leaders & commentators

hristian women who want to pursue influential roles in politics, the church, and other sectors of public life in the United States and Canada have never before had more opportunities to do so. As the following profiles in our cover package show, they are taking advantage of those opportunities in spades. It's not just a golden moment for Christian women, of course, but for the entire church, as we benefit from the fruit of their manifold gifts.

The Suffragette (1912-1915) When the WSPU lost control over Votes for Women after the split with the Pethick Lawrences, it began publishing a new official organ, The Suffragette, under the editorship of Christabel Pankhurst. An advertising campaign was launched that included the introduction of several colorful art posters that promoted the new paper. Through such efforts, the paper in the best of times did reach a circulation of 17,000. However, the Home Office was determined to suppress the paper. On May 2, 1913, the manager of the Victoria Printing Company, which had printed that week’s issue, was arrested. Another publisher was found and another publisher was arrested. Finally, the paper was printed in Glasgow at the offices of a progressive publication called the Forward. Although the government was never able to fully suppress the paper, its efforts in that direction caused circulation to plummet to 10,000 copies.

Votes for Women (1907-12, 1912-14, 1914-18) Votes for Women, which for a period of 5 years served as the official organ of the W.S.P.U., was the most widely circulated and influential of all of the English suffrage papers. It started up as a monthly in October of 1907 under the joint editorship of Emmeline and Frederick Lawrence. In April of 1908, it became a weekly, and its price was reduced one month later from 3d to 1d in an attempt to boost circulation, enabled by the Pethick Lawrences, who subsidized the paper. In October of 1909, in conjunction with an advertising campaign that included a “Suffrage Bus,” its page size was increased, with circulation eventually reaching 30,000 copies a week. Votes for Women was known for its in-depth articles, its lengthy biographies of suffrage leaders, its detailed reporting of the activities of local chapters, its extensive coverage of marches and demonstrations, and its many ads for such WSPU products as pamphlets, badges, postcards, calendars, and Christmas gifts. Most issues also featured a front-page cartoon by Alfred Pease, who signed his name “Another Patriot” and whose illustrations also appeared on postcards issued by the WSPU. On March 12, 1912, the police came to WSPU headquarters to arrest the Lawrences along with Christabel Pankhurst for campaign related activities. Christabel escaped to France, but the Lawrences were sentenced to 9 months in prison. On their release from prison, the Lawrences began to express reservations about violent acts as window smashing, fearing that they were causing the WSPU to lose support with the public. When they met with Christabel in France, she outlined plans to them about a proposed arson campaign. When they objected, she had them expelled from the WSPU. Taking Votes for Women with them, they formed their own suffrage organization, the Votes For Women Alliance, and they continued to publish the paper in much the same format, including covers with the Pease illustrations. In 1914, they handed over control of the paper to the United Suffragists, who continued it on as a monthly until 1918 when, with the passage of the 1918 Qualification of Women Act, they ceased publication.

Maryland Suffrage News (1912-1920) The Maryland Suffrage News was founded in 1912 by Edith Houghton Hooker to serve as the official organ of the Just Government League of Maryland, which she had also founded (1909). The paper was designed to serve a two-fold purpose: (1) to help unite the various suffrage organizations scattered around the state to bring pressure on the legislature to be more sympathetic to the issues of women; (2) to serve as a source of information about suffrage to the women of the state because main stream papers were virtually blind to the existence of the movement. Its pages contained information about the movement, discussions about the needs of working class women through such articles as “the Working Woman and the Ballot,” and news about education. Hooker saw the need for a focus on passing a national amendment. The JGL borrowed the purple, green, and white color scheme of the WSPU, the militant arm of the suffrage movement in England, and she did maintain a friendship with Alice Paul that led her to become editor of the National Woman’s Party journal, The Suffragist, in 1913. But the JGL was an affiliate of the more conservative National American Woman Suffrage Association.
