The Vote was a newspaper founded by the Women’s Freedom League (WFL), published from 1909 until 1933, initially published weekly.[1]

The Vote became the WFL’s primary means of communication with the public, informing readers of campaigns, protests and events, but its ultimate purpose can summed up as follows:

We hope and believe that through its pages the public will come to understand what the Parliamentary Franchise means to us women. Now it will be both a symbol of citizenship and the key to a door opening out on such service to the community as we have never yet been allowed to render, and therefore it is our earnest hope that our paper will keep its place in the hearts of men and women long after the first victory has been won.[2]
