Seeking a woman’s right to vote in public elections in the UK, ‘Suffragettes’ were members of various (often militant) organisations in the early 20th Century. The term "suffragette" is usually attributed to those in the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU), the radical actions of which (such as hunger strikes) were led by Emmeline and Christabel Pankhurst. Suffragist is a more general term for members of the movement – these were largely upper- and middle-class women frustrated by their social and economic circumstances. Their actions inspired and reflected a wider social movement which eventually achieved their aims; partial rights to vote were granted in 1918, with all women over 21 being allowed to vote after 1928.
