Abstract

This article discusses the Women’s Party, founded by Emmeline and Christabel Pankhurst in November 1917 at a time when Britain was still fighting in World War One. It examines the origins and aims of the Women’s Party which, with the slogan ‘Victory, National Security and Progress’, conflated the winning of the war with the women’s cause. It is contended that global politics on the world stage as well as local politics at home shaped the agenda of the Women’s Party in many differing ways.
