Suffragetto is a feminist, political board game dating to the early 1900s. It was created by the Women’s Social and Political Union.
In 1903, Emmeline Pankhurst (1858–1928), with daughters Christabel and Sylvia, formed the WSPU because they were frustrated with the slow-moving pacifist methods of the mainstream movement. For over fifty years, UK women had campaigned for the right to vote, with little progress. Wanting to “wake up the nation” with “deeds not words,” the WSPU embarked on a coordinated plan of civic disruption.
