Les Édouardiennes et le parti libéral en Grande-Bretagne, 1906-1914 : quelles femmes ? Quel parti libéral ?

Abstract : On the political and voluntary stage of the Edwardian period, women who claimed the vote and the Liberal government waged their mutual war. The latter could count on the loyalty of of its MPS who despite being clearly favourable to the female vote from 1908 never actually fought their government on the issue before the war. Liberal women, suffragist women and working-class women were the three pillars of a single-issue campaign based on the federating slogan “on the same terms as men”. Women from all political affiliations, sometimes in contradiction with their class or party loyalties, wanted equal citizenship with men and the same voting rights; their claim conquered the country but not Parliament where tactics of male property-based suffrage still prevailed for lack of political imagination.
