FutureLearn: Beyond the Ballot: Women’s Rights and Suffrage from 1866 to Today

 with  Claire Kennan

Explore the remarkable history of women’s rights

6th February 2018 will mark the centenary of the Representation of the People Act, the change in the law that gave (some) women the right to vote in Westminster elections for the first time.

On this course you will travel back to the nineteenth century to explore the legal, social and economic frameworks that limited women’s rights prior to the vote and discover the pioneering women campaigning for change. You will learn the story of how and why the vote was extended to women in 1918, the movements behind this change and how the struggle for equality continued throughout the twentieth century.

This course is intended for anyone with an interest in nineteenth or twentieth century history, the women’s suffrage campaign or the history of women’s rights. It does not require any reading before you start or previous experience of studying the subject.
