Show Summary Details


This chapter reprises the symbolic value of women’s suffrage, particularly in relation to its ramifications for Anglican sexual politics. It narrates the interlinked campaign for women’s franchise and representation in Church and civil government and argues that granting women equal suffrage to men in the interwar period represented a significant readjustment of the balance of subordination and equality in Anglican gender understanding.
