  • Suffragette Campaign
    • Increasingly  violent
      • Members  became more ruthless and therefore more eager to get the vote
      • Women were willing to die for the cause
        • Emily  Davidson became the first Suffragette martyr
      • Because of the more militant actions there were a decline  of suffragettes
      • Violent actions
        • Attack/ Assault a man
        • Chain themselves to rainlings
        • Set of bombs
        • They were even willing to kill people
      • As their actions got more militant the suffragists distanced themselves- they did not want to be associated.

            • They were not completely irrational, as they did pause their militant actions when the war began.
            • They did stop their violence briefly and resorted to peaceful marches- At the time when the government had stopped to consider granting them the vote. This proves that they would be civilized if the government gave them what they wanted.
            • The press portrayed the suffrages as mad women, and produced many posters. This again was becuase of their shocking actions
