Best Answer

'The Representation of People act' became law in the UK as of February 1918, there for women over the age of 30 got to vote. Suffragette's saw this as a big step forward however it wasn't great for women under 30 as they would have to wait a while before being able to vote. Then in 1928 this got extended so that women had voting equality with men, meaning they had to be 21 or over.
