The War

(p.139) Chapter Eight The War
Mrs Brown is a Man and a Brother
Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines the impact of the First World War on the women's suffrage movement in Liverpool. It explains that many large organisations ceased active suffrage campaigning during the war and there were a number of smaller organisations that attempted to re-situate feminist demands in a fresh context during the war. These include the Home Service Corp, the Civic Service League, and the Women's War Service Bureau (WWSB). This chapter also considers how feminists used the opportunities provided by the war to advance their cause and discusses the view that the enfranchisement of women was a ‘reward’ for their war work.
