Women’s Freedom League

The Women’s Freedom League, formed in 1907, was a group in the United Kingdom that campaigned for women’s suffrage and equality.

The Imperial Parliament (Qualification of Women) Act 1918 allowed women to be elected to parliament. In 1928 women received the vote on the same terms as men as a result of the Representation of the People Act 1928.

Many Australian and South Australian women and men campaigned alongside British women and men for universal suffrage.
