Summary "This book covers the period 1890-1940 and focuses on the political role of women in north-east Ulster, specifically the suffrage campaign, women's involvement in unionist and nationalist associations and in municipal and national politics. The extent, diversity and significance of women's political participation has been uncovered both as ancillary workers and in the elective positions of MP, poor law guardian and local government councillor. The impact of women's enfranchisement in changing their political stature has also been analysed, as have the methods deployed by women to exert political influence."--BOOK JACKET
