The women who led the campaign for voting rights saw this as just the first step in the journey towards full equality for women. Achieving the vote gave them a burst of confidence and they worked hard to achieve other reforms in the following years.

But what happened to these early idealists and how successful were they? Are some of their aspirations unfulfilled even today, 125 years later? Why did the nineteenth century ‘first wave’ women’s movement appear to die out and why did women have to wait so long before a woman was elected to Parliament?

Margaret Lovell-smith was Co-ordinator at the CWEA until 2016. As an historian she has published mainly on topics of local history, women's biography and the nineteenth century women's movement in Canterbury.
