734 words - 3 pages

Part B: Do you agree with the view that, at the end of the nineteenth century, winning the vote for women seemed to be 'further away than ever'?By the end of the nineteenth century, there was reason to suggest both why the vote for women had been brought closer and also been pushed further away. This was due to a number of aspects which arose during the period which seemed to show to people that the vote was further away than ever however; it did seem that the vote was nearing closer by the end of the era.First of all, source 18 is showing that people were giving up on the vote and the suffrage campaign because it seemed as if nothing was going to happen and that the 'dead period of the movement begun'.

Therefore it did seem possible that the national vote was further away than ever because women already had their place in politics.However, on the other hand source 16 suggests that there were signs of progress towards the women's vote and this came from the involvement that they already had in politics. The source says that it was in the '1890's that women first took an important role in party...
