Suffrage groups were formed all over Britain to demand that women should have the same political rights as men. These groups held public meetings, organised petitions, and wrote letters to politicians, published newspapers and distributed free literature. Although the first women's suffrage society in Britain was established in 1867, but it was not until 1918 that female householders aged over 30 were given the vote and not until 1928 was the vote extended to women on the same term as men.
