Women's Suffrage and the Campaign against it. The appeal to common sense and the educated thought of the men and women of England against the proposed extension of the Parliamentary suffrage to women (1889). There was an active and widely supported movement against Votes for Women in the last quarter of the 19th century, with both sexes actively campaigning to prevent all women receiving the right to vote. The anti-suffrage supporters saw women's role in society as womanly duties, maternal roles, good works, and helping the disadvantaged. Through these actions they believed that women had influence, and were even in some instances content that men in their role as brothers, husbands or guardians had a vote that represented their interests too. Even the act of organizing an anti movement was complicated by the belief that women had to have a passive political role and actively campaigning against the vote was against this principle. Still, against this backdrop of such social norms there was development of an Anti Women's Suffrage voice, which found expression in the pages of The Nineteenth Century magazine. Published in The Nineteenth Century journal, a publication started in 1877 by James Knowles. Many of the early contributors to The Nineteenth Century were members of the Metaphysical Society. The journal was intended to publish debate by leading intellectuals. Its interests were in science, morality, public affairs and standards, philosophy, religion, etc. In 1901, the title was changed to The Nineteenth Century and After.
