The Suffragettes use to get their voices heard

The Suffragettes also held demonstrations, and they often broke the law by smashing windows or chaining themselves to fences to protest because the government refused to give women the right to vote.



In 1918 women in the UK gained the vote. Atfirst, the British government gave women aged over 30 the right to vote, although men could vote when they were 21. Women were finally allowed to vote at the same age as men shortly after Emmeline died on 14 June 1928.
