Abstract:

'How the Vote Was Won' is set in the living room of Horace and Ethel Cole in Brixton, London, on the day of a general women's strike called by Suffragettes because the Government has said that women do not need votes as they are all looked after by men. All the women who have previously supported themselves agree to leave their jobs and homes and instead insist on support from their nearest male relative. As Horace's female relatives arrive at his house one after the other, he comes to realise something must be done and rushes to Parliament, to demand 'Votes for Women' as soon as possible. The play was first performed at the Royalty Theatre, London, in April 1909.
