Interesting that Con did not use the example of the Staff as independent single women who had no other way of having a political voice. Perhaps, in her shock, it did not occur to her.
This is slightly amusing:

Thanks I missed posting when it was first on Board as I was away from home and posting was difficult. It is an interesting review of the ideas surrounding sufferage. I noted none of the girls expected women to have two votes, their own and their husbands. So many people do not vote today yet they expect to give their oppinion to all who will listen, I was tuaght if I did not vote I could not critise. I would love to know the staffs views.

Interesting. Where I come from it was automatically assumed that the woman would vote as her husband did. I hope it's changed by now though.
Author's Response: Thank you, and interesting that it was assumed that way till so recently.

Interesting to see the different points of view there & very true that we all look at the same thing from completely separate standpoints, influenced by our peers & family.
Thanks Kathryn :-D
Author's Response: It is, always makes me pause when I remember that. Also people don't generally like change :-)

This is thoughtful. I had suffragettes in my family and I've heard tales of how it was quite often other women who were their most vociferous opponents.
Author's Response: Yes, that fact surprised me too. Also how many of the suffragettes had no interest in universal suffrage, only in that of their own class!
