86 Words1 Page
The militant suffrage movement was a new form of advocacy for women’s independence. The organization’s militant tactics brought a new wave of communal awareness to this cause. As a result, this movement sanctioned Parliament to pass the Representation of the People Act on February 6, 1918 in Britain. This proposed women to have the same political rights as men. As of today, women have gained their right to vote. This wouldn’t have been possible without Emmeline Pankhurst and the Suffragettes’ efforts to work towards this goal.
