What Happened After the Vote Was Won?

An International Conference

All are welcome to our conference that seeks to shed new light on gender and political history in the post suffrage period by considering how the contested legacies of both women's suffrage and universal suffrage reflected and refracted contemporary debates about political representation, democratic reform, gender relations the sexual divisions of labour in politics and women's very gradual inclusion in politics.
