Struggles and Suffrage in Portsmouth

The women of Portsmouth had a necessity to be tough.

They kept their families together during long naval and military deployments overseas, raising their children on their own for much of this time. They worked in domestic service, in nearby stay factories or simply took in sewing to complete in their own homes, often with the help of their children.

The local suffrage campaign was driven as much by the lack of opportunities for middle-class women as reaction to sweating in local stay factories and the injustices of the Contagious Diseases Acts.

Women's own voices are seldom heard in surviving sources before the end of the 19th century, but as the century came to an end suffragists, pioneers of women's education, women who stood for public office for the first time, and those who entered the professions began to step forward.
