Mrs. Chew was a radical member of a group that was, itself, radical. A fringe of a fringe--if you will. She spoke for herself and what she had to say is interesting--but the voice of one person.Why did Ada Nield Chew then criticize the WSPU in 1904 by saying that "the entire class of wealthy women would be enfranchised, that the great body of working women, married or single, would be voteless still"? Why did WSPU fall out with the Independent Labour Party over universal suffrage?
WSPU was interested in votes for women. The ILP was interested in universal suffrage. Two different things. Isabella Ford pointed out that many working class men didn't have a vote and that their cause ought to be included but WSPU was focused.
