Votes for Women

LSE History gives: "... Frederick and Emmeline Pethick-Lawrence, who owned and edited the WSPU newspaper Votes for Women. Founded in 1907, Votes for Women was printed at the St Clement’s Press on Clare Market until 1912. St Clement’s Press is the St Clement’s Building and Waterstones Economists’ bookshop on Clare Market."

The Titanic sank in 1912 when the campaign for 'Votes for Women' was at its height. In a Guardian article on 30/3/13 Jeanette Winterson wrote “After Titantic sank, with its too few lifeboats and women and children first policy, the popular press ran a series of anti-suffrage stories called Votes or Boats. "When a woman talks women's rights let her be answered with the word Titanic – nothing more, just Titanic."
