An organized women’s suffrage movement operated continuously in Britain for more than sixty years, from the mid-1860s until the achievement of equal voting rights in 1928. This volume represents the first comprehensive investigation into this movement in Wales, which participated in agitation throughout the period. Covering the dramatic and sensational actions carried out by suffragettes in Wales, as well as the more mundane day-to-day campaigns for equal rights, Ryland Wallace uses extensive archival material in order to assess the impact of various campaigning organizations and the hugely committed but unsung individuals who carried out their ideals.
