The Suffragettes were led by the Pankhurst family, and used

violence in a bid to achieve women's rights, which were severely

lacking in the early 1900's. Crucially they couldn't vote, which

was their number one goal, hence the name Suffragettes - Suffrage

means the right to vote. Voting rights for women.

Votes for women

The Suffragettes were women, it has the female suffix, who agitated

for women's rites, particularily the right to vote- women's

Suffrage. They engaged in all kinds of often dangerous publicity

stunts to accent their cause- about l00 yrs ago- in l9l3, an

English Suffragette jumped in front of a race horse- taking her

life in the process. as said they were not above hazardous

publicity stunts. among the more sober and reasoning suffragettes

in the US were Elizabeth Cady Stanton ( It"s Cady Stanton not Candy

Stanton!) and Susan B. Anthony, both who died of mature natural

causes, not casualites of crackbrain publicity stunts! With the

advent of the XIXth amendment in the US, the term fell into disuse

except historically!
