What was the suffrage movement? What did it accomplish?

Answer :

All over Europe and the USA, women and the poor have had to fight for participation in government. Women’s struggle to vote got strengthened during the First World War. This movement is called the women’s suffrage movement as the term suffrage usually means the right to vote. The suffragettes demanded the right to vote for all women and to get their demands heard they chained themselves to railings in public places. Many suffragettes were imprisoned and went on hunger strikes, they had to be fed by force. American women got right to vote in 1920 while women in the UK got to vote on the same terms as men some years later, in 1928.
