Gendered Movements Since the 1700’s Britain 1857 - women could divorce husbands who were cruel to them or husbands who had left them 1870 – The US Census was the first to count the number of females in the work force. Women were 15% of the total work force (1.8 million out of 12.5). 1903 - The Women's Social and Political Union was created by Emmeline Pankhurst. They became known as the Suffragettes. She believed that if men would not listen to reasonable ideas, then women should use force to push for what they wanted - the right to vote. Their policies included the burning of churches, attacks on politicians, disrupting the day-to-day work of Parliament and, if arrested, going on hunger strike. 1917 - Women started entering the work force as the men of the United States went off to fight in the First World War. 1920 - Women won the right to vote in open elections.
