In 1893, New Zealand became the first country to give voting rights to women. In Britain at this time, the Suffragettes were still demonstrating for this right. They collected signatures, broke shop windows and attacked politicians’ homes. But in 1914, when World War I started, the Suffragettes stopped their campaign and, like many other women, they got jobs in offices and factories. During the war, women had to do ‘men’s jobs’ – and this was a strong argument for women’s rights. Finally in Britain, in 1918, at the end of the war, women over 30 were given the right to vote.
