The truth is, and its in sense the same all over the world. Somehow all believes that men had the right to vote, when the truth is it took a darn long time to get all men to be able to vote. Just for one example Sweden. Before 1921 the rules was that all could vote, even women. But women wasnt allowed to vote if they were married. Men on the other hand was allowed to vote, if they did the military, wich not all Swedish men got to do. So just one small click had the right to vote, those in sense that had money and power. If you did the military, that opened lots of instances in Sweden. Despite this men in prisons, or mentally disordered men or for that matter men with handicap wasnt allowed to vote. 1921 all this changed. The first time that all women in sweden got to vote. Still not all men got to vote. That law changed first in 1924 when almost all men got to vote. The law that said a swedish man had to do military, was removed. Still men in prison and such wasnt allowed to vote. And to be honest Swedish sitizenen living in other countries wasnt allowed to vote either. If they should, they had to be in sweden. So ok. Not all women could vote maybe. But that change so late as in the 2000- century, when our election accepted voting at embassies and such.
So in sense, the suffragets fought for only white women to vote, not all people. The feminist has said during all years now, that women didnt get to vote, but thats not true. At least not in sweden. Yes women wasnt allowed to vote for parlament before 1921, but in smaller elections they were... but as I said... not all men got to vote then either. But strangly enough, feminist had changed the history to "All men got to vote" when it was just the more priviliege once. If i lived during 1921 I wasnt allowed to vote if I didnt to military.
And one more bad thing about suffraget, and their shaming of young men that didnt fight in the first world war, so that they felt force to enter. So they was not all good. BUt they were important.
Yes the show got it right, when they had No black women into the suffraget ranks. So historical correct, suffraget didnt fight for all women, just the more priviliege ones. BUt depsite this feministic vibe, and all men bad (in this show except for our heroes I guess) and not really that intelligent. I did like it. It was told in a good way. So not bad.
