Streaming Video - 2014

In the final episode of her story of British women's fight for power, historian Amanda Vickery explores how the Edwardian suffragette movement became a quasi-terrorist organization and argues it is best understood as part of an ongoing equality struggle. She brings to life the enemies of female enfranchisement, from Prime Minister Herbert Asquith to the National Anti-Suffrage League. We learn about the political backroom deal that finally allowed some women the vote; discrimination against the first female MP Lady Astor; and the misogynistic backlash of the 1920s, revealed through attitudes to a women's football team. The series concludes by looking to Margaret Thatcher, 50 years after women won the vote. Was her election a sign that the suffragette dream had been fulfilled, or is this a fight that is still going on today?
