'Votes for Women' was originally the official voice of the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU). The journal was edited by Emmeline and Frederick Pethick-Lawrence from 1907 to 1918. Although the Pethick-Lawrences were expelled from the WSPU in 1912, they continued to edit the newspaper in 1913-1914 and gradually formed a group of moderate militants around it: the Votes for Women Fellowship.
