Suffs vs Antis: The Long History of the Nineteenth Amendment (June 2020): International Activity

by Duncan R. Jamieson

International Activity

As mentioned early on, important links existed between fights for woman suffrage in Britain and the US. In Connecting Links: The British and American Woman Suffrage Movements, 1900–1914, Patricia Greenwood Harrison explores how women on both sides of the Atlantic shared strategies through correspondence, visits, and speaking tours, while British and American newspapers kept the issue in the public sphere. At the forefront of the movement in Britain, Emmeline Pankhurst (1858–1928) organized the British woman suffrage movement. Paula Bartley writes in Emmeline Pankhurst that her efforts were based on her conviction that this mobilization was a part of the wider political and social reality in both Great Britain and the US
