This chapter examines the history of women's suffrage society in Liverpool. It evaluates the success of different organisations in politicising women and analyses how organisations function on the ground and how are these experienced by individual members. It suggests that the first signs of suffrage agitation on Merseyside demonstrated close ties of personnel and politics to the radical Manchester circle. This chapter also provides an account of the history the Liverpool Women's Suffrage Society (LWSS) and Eleanor Rathbone and Nessie Stewart-Brown's Municipal Women's Association (MWA) and their activities.
