Extracts from this document...


Does Source B support the evidence of Source C about the Suffragette campaign? The Suffragette campaign was an outcome of the Suffragist campaign. The two campaigns were fighting for the same cause, Women's Votes, but fighting in very different ways. The Suffragette campaign consisted of, rather than peaceful demonstrations and petitions from the Suffragists, more violent protests. These demonstrations included; Arson, vandalism, attempted murder and even suicide. In many men's, and women's, eyes these acts were classed as terrorism and were carefully taken into account when discussing Women's Votes in parliament, or simply at dinner parties. Source B is an extract from a book called 'Woman or suffragette' written by a woman, who you would expect to be for votes for women. ...read more.


There are many similarities between Source B and Source C and Source B does, to some extent, support Source C. Source B, from 'Woman or Suffragette' by Marie Corelli, suggests that there are many discontented women in England, showing some sympathy toward the suffragettes. The extract carries on saying 'It cannot be denied that women suffer great injustice at the hands of men. The single word 'Suffer' backs up the point of Marie Corelli feeling sympathetic toward the women because this word shows understanding to the mental and physical pains endured by the suffragettes.

This is proved in his title 'The Shrieking Sister'. Shrill, meaning high pitch and uncomfortable, has a very similar meaning to shriek, which means a high pitch squeal or shout. Along with the many similarities between the sources there are a handful of differences. For example Source B suggests that women shouldn't have the vote at all, 'Women were and are destined to make voters rather than to be voters themselves'. This is not the case in Bernard Partridges cartoon. His cartoon shows that he is neither for nor against the Women's Votes. Also Marie Corelli talks about the suffragettes as 'Ladies'. This shows she classes the suffragettes as well educated and upper class females. On the other hand Bernard Partridge drew the suffragist as a tatty, badly dressed, ankle-showing woman rather than an elegant lady. ?? ?? ?? ?? Tom Bletsoe - 10Gi ...read more.
