Women may have many roles in the society and in their households but not one
of them includes the right to vote. Even if they contribute so much to the society, women were not deemed “persons” under the law. There were initially two main groups who were involved in this issue. The “suffragettes” and the “anti suffragettes”. The suffragettes were a term given to women who fought for their right to vote through protest. They believed that with all their contribution and member in the society, they should be able to vote and be deemed as “persons” under the law. Anti-suffragettes opposed them and believed women should not have the right to vote. They have different perspectives as some people believed men were superior to women, women were inferior to men and others didn’t believe that. Men are physically stronger and because of religious purposes they believed men were superior. Women still did a lot of work traditionally done by men as men went to war, so gender roles were not the same anymore but anti suffragettes still believed women were inferior and did not deserve the right to vote. They believe in male supremacy.
The perspectives of the suffragettes: Usually they were all women but there were some men too.
