Q1) Study Source A What can you learn from Source A about the reasons given by the Suffragettes for demanding votes for women? Source A suggests that the Suffragettes eagerly demanded the right to vote for women. Source A is a poster created by the Suffragettes in 1912 and its purpose was to get many people to support them.

They were making hard progress and so this poster was produced to gain as much support as possible, so then next time the government or parties would not refuse and be forced to give the right to vote for women. The poster also wanted us to know how women are capable of voting. This can be seen in source A, by the women's duties such as responsible mayor, sensible nurse, caring mother, educated doctor or teacher as well as the helpful factory hand. These duties shows us that women are more than what they need to be in order to vote, They are able to lead a town, make people have a better community like mayors. ...read more.


These men suggest how untrustworthy, lazy these men were while have the vote. The Suffragettes showed us that these men were taking something away from society, breaking the law. Source A wanted us to know why women still don't have the vote they wanted, so they want us to support them and show some contribution of this campaign. Overall, I think the Suffragette poster was propaganda as it clearly shows one sided, not all men are like irresponsible. Their target was to let us know that women should get the vote, but with my own knowledge Suffragette were a violent campaign so it won't really convince people to be on their side unless you are a woman. ...read more.
