In 1918, eight million women won the vote – but what does this mean for those living a century later?

Women and the Women's Movement since 1914 explores the successes and setbacks of the women's movement across several generations. It examines the relationship between the organised women's movement, the political elite and popular commercial forces such as women's magazines. Martin Pugh analyses the strategies used by women after 1918 to get elected to parliament and argues that there is little evidence that voters were hostile to women. He explains why militant tactics were disposed of after women had won the vote and demonstrates how the movement adapted its programme to changed conditions under a mass electorate.

This third edition has been fully updated to include a new chapter on the political breakthrough of 1997 and its consequences. This also assesses the extent to which employment issues have become the chief focus of the movement, alongside the emergence of women in powerful positions in the Trades Union Congress and in government. The impact of the internet on new methods of feminist campaigning is also examined, as this study brings us up to the present day and looks towards the future – and the huge impact women are likely to have in forthcoming elections.
