The road to suffrage for women was often bumpy and unwelcomed by men and women alike. The women’s suffrage van arrived in Surrey on Saturday 16 May 1908, its first meeting inciting riots. By the arrival of the First World War, middle-class girls were not allowed out without a chaperone, few married women had a job and no woman was allowed to vote. After the Second World War, despite massive social upheaval and change, women were still expected to live up to the typical housewife persona. Together we dig a little deeper to get a clearer picture of how women’s lives dramatically changed between 1850 and 1950.
