This special issue of Caliban reassesses the discourses, controversies, and socio-political movements that prepared and followed the voting of the Representation of the People Act 1918. On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Act which secured the principle of female suffrage in Britain, contributors explore the diverse ways in which women’s political status and citizenship were negotiated and theorized. Exploring a wide array of often understudied sources from the beginning of the nineteenth century to the present, the original essays included in this volume testify to the rich polyphony and vital complexity of the history of feminism, and to the difficulties inherent in the making and memorializing of such a history.
