Abstract

У статті досліджуються особливості взаємодії активістів жіночого руху та британських політичних сил у контексті боротьби за надання жінкам виборчих прав. Акцентується увага на ключових позиціях у відображенні засобами масової інформації політичного нерівноправ’я жінки та діяльності суфражистського руху у Великій Британії. (In the modern world, on the wave of revision of traditional stereotypes through the prism of gender analysis, the views about the place of women in society are undergoing significant changes. In this context, the history of the struggle for women’s suffrage appears in the new light, and therefore requires a deeper analysis. British suffrage movement is a unique phenomenon in British history. Due to the increased activity of the suffrage campaigners in the first decades of the XX century, they could not stay out of view of society. First of all, they had attracted attention of the mass media. The peculiarities of interaction between activists of the women’s movement and British political power in the context of the struggle for women’s suffrage have been studied. Attention is accented on the key positions of reflection by mass media of the women’s political inequality and the suffrage movement activity in Great Britain. The investigation is based on the analysis of British periodicals. The author concludes that in addition to coverage of the major events in the House of Commons, public suffrage meetings and results of polling on the suffrage question, the struggle for women’s right to vote is reflected in the cartoons. Their content was depended on the positions of editorial boards, their authors and state policy. Often in these cartoons women were laughed at and their claims were pointed as «absurdity». Particular criticism has undergone the militant wing of the suffrage movement. The reasons of the failures that have befallen the suffrage bills in 1905–1913 include:1) inconsistent views of political parties and individual MPs on the terms of women’s enfranchisement; 2) there were other urgent problems to resolve (for example, Home Rule for Ireland); 3) fears that women, due to their numerical superiority in the population, will have a greater impact on the formation of the British Parliament than men have had, and will be able to become MPs; 3) opposition of the Prime Minister Herbert Asquith to the claims of the suffrage campaigners; 4) opposition of the part of British society (both men and women) to proposed changes.)
