Summary

  • The women's suffrage, or suffragette, movement in Great Britain was dominated by two groups. The National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies (NUWSS), led by Millicent Garrett Fawcett, advocated peaceful protest, while the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU), led by the Pankhurst family, condoned the use of more militant tactics, such as hunger strikes.
