Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines the political activities of women in Liverpool during the period from 1890 to 1905. It explains that during this period both the local Liberal and Conservative parties opened branches of their national auxiliary women's organisations and the Socialist Party also actively sought women members. It describes the activities of the women in the parties' organisation, including the Primrose League, the Women's Liberal Federation (WLF), and the Liverpool Women Socialists (LWS). This chapter clarifies that in all political groups, women members served the interests of their parties and not the other way around.
