Women's struggle to vote got strengthened during the First World War.This movement is called the women sufferage movement as the term sufferage usually means right to vote.
The suffragettes demanded that right to vote for all women and to get their demands heard they chained themselves to railing in public places.
Many sufferagttes were imprisoned and went on hunger strikes and they had to be fed by force.
American women got right to vote in 1920 while women in UK got to vote on the same terms as men some years later in 1928.
