She was one of the supporters of Newnham College, Cambridge, and was later offered the post of Mistress of Girton, but refused because of her commitment to womens suffrage. She was active as a Suffragist, and opposed the violence of the Suffragette movement. In 1918, women over thirty were given the vote, but this did not end Fawcetts struggle for equal rights, and full suffrage was not achieved until 1928. This work, published in 1920, looks back at the long campaign for womens suffrage, and concludes with an examination of what had actually been achieved in 1918. It supplements her 1911 work Womens Suffrage, a Short History of the Great MovementFor more information on this author, see http: //orlando.cambridge.org/public/svPeople...
