Text

But if we are ready to act we ask at once, "What, then, can we do?" The Suffragette supplies an immediate answer :-- "The Parliamentary vote is the key which unlocks reform. We will first win the vote, and then we will use it to improve the condition of women. By means of it we will abolish the sweating of women's labour, and we will gradually secure the raising of women's wages until there be not two standards of pay for the same work--one for men and the other for women."
