Punch: "Her First Jump" (05/Dec/1906)

An illustration mocking the Suffragettes by Bernard Partridge from Punch (05/Dec/1906).

Just seven months later, 26-year-old Victor Grayson, standing as an Independent Labour candidate with the support of the Suffragettes, won a sensational victory in the Colne Valley by-election of July 1907, defeating the Liberal and Conservative candidates. One of Grayson's main manifesto demands was votes for women, along with such radical suggestions as "nationalisation of the land, railways and canals, the introduction of old age pensions and free education, the right to work, and abolition of the House of Lords."
