Edexcel History Coursework Votes For Women Assignment 2

2257 words - 9 pages

1. Study Source A. What can you learn from Source A about the reasons given by the Suffragettes for demanding votes for women?From source A we learn a few things on why the Suffragettes demanded votes for women. Source A is a poster which shows a contrast, it features in the top row responsible women; with the words “What a woman may be but yet not have the vote”. On the bottom row it features it shows irresponsible men with the words “What a man may have been and yet not lose the vote.” From this we can see that women during 1912 were making rapid progress in many professions, for example women were doctors and mayors and yet could not vote due to their gender., whereas men who were drunkards and convicts could still vote because they were men.Many women felt unfairly treated due to this, especially the women within the Suffragette movement, and so this unfair feeling is one of the reasons that a large campaign was put about in getting votes for women by the Suffragettes as seen through the source.Also from Source A I can infer that Suffragettes were also frustrated by the pace of getting votes for women through peaceful means, which was being done by the Suffragists. Putting up “shocking” posters like these, they thought could help generate more publicity and speed the pace of progress towards suffrage for women.2. Study Sources B and C. Does Source B support the evidence of source C about the Suffragette campaign? Explain your answer.Source B supports Source C to an extent; however there are a few differences which can be seen. Source B is an extract from a book by Marie Corelli and Source C is a cartoon by Bernard Partridge.Sources B and C are similar since they both portray the Suffragettes as mad women, and that Suffragettes are not the cause of women in society. Since in Source C the caption reads “THE SHRIEKING SISTER” underneath a picture of a wild looking Suffragette. And in Source B it says ““Votes for women” is the shrill cry of a number of discontented ladies”. The Shrill cry described by Marie Corelli and the word shrieking used in the caption also both help us paint the same negative image.There is however aspects where source B and source C disagree with each other. Firstly Source B sympathizes with another pro woman’s suffrage group called the Suffragists, by presenting the Suffragist as the sensible woman. Whereas source C states that neither Suffragists nor Suffragettes are right in demanding votes for women, and that “Women were and are destined to make voters rather than to be voters themselves”. Marie Corelli still feels that even though women “suffer great injustice at the hands of men” should still incline to their natural roles of rearing children. On the contrary Bernard Partridge feels that women’s suffrage should come about, however believes that the Suffragette campaign is not the way.Another disagreement between the sources is...
