Study source b and c. does source b support the evidence of source c about the suffragette Campaign? Explain your answer. B was written by a woman who puts forward a reasoned argument. It's an extract from a book about female suffrage called 'woman or suffragette', published in 1907. The book is against the disorder that the female suffragette applied to the public and made out that a once you join the suffragettes you lose the woman inside you.

C is a cartoon by a man who is writing to arouse public attention therefore he shows the public what they want to hear. As the majority of the public apposes the suffragette campaign, Bernard has made a mockery of the suffragettes. Source c and b take notice of the fact that women are mistreated; but they have different reasoning for this, therefore I have concluded that the differences between the two out weigh the similarities.
