This newsreel shows a suffragette march in London. This clip (especially 04:13 - 04:55) shows that Nationalist and Liberals were not the only opponents Unionists and Conservatives faced. Both Andrew Bonar Law (leader of the Conservative opposition) and Sir Edward Carson (leader of the Irish Unionists) opposed votes for women and this was the reason why suffragettes called for their arrest. However, neither Herbert Asquith (the Liberal Prime Minister) nor John Redmond (leader of the Irish Parliamentary Party) would come out in favour of votes for women. It was not until November 1918 that women were given the vote.
