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. This was a big accusation to make at the time, and would insult all suffragettes. Source c is a cartoon published by Bernard partridge in 1906.

At the start of the 1900s it was uncommon to find educated women; so Marie Corelli must have come from a house hold that respect women's rights and beliefs. Although Marie apposes female suffrage she had admitted that women had suffered in the hands of men ''it cannot be denied that woman suffer great injustice at the hands of men.'' This shows that she is aware that women were mistreated but she suggests that it's the woman's fault, as they bring up their young to believe that this mentality was acceptable.

Marie uses the words shrill cry to show women's discomfort about the way they are treated. It shows desperation and sorrow within the women of the time.

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.

  1. Votes for women - source related questions.

  2. The Derby 1913 - source related study.

    Emmeline states that Emily gave her life "for the women's cause," and sacrificed her life for the emancipation of women, opinions that hold no prove, and I believe that Emmeline saw this as not much more than great opportunity to increase the publicity about the suffragette movement.

    As a result of this large expenditure, taxes were raised and so the Liberal Government was not popular in the (mainly Conservative) House of Lords. This meant a general election in 1910 had to be won by a majority to stay in power, and votes for women was not a popular policy in general.

    We know this to be true and the photograph in Source B reflects this. The teacher then says, "We hadn't the slightest idea where we were going..." This could point out the disorganised and confused atmosphere of the evacuation. The fact that no one knew where they were going suggest that the evacuation was reasonably spontaneous and maybe disorderly.

  2. Does Source B support the evidence of source C about the suffragette campaign

    Source C is obviously just trying to make the suffragettes look bad so that it makes the suffragists look better. Source B however seems to be bias towards the men and is trying to point out that women are naturally incapable of being as mature as the men.
