The continued growth of scholarly work on the British women’s suffrage movement has served to underscore what Mary Jean Corbett noted many years ago, that “the meaning of the suffrage movement is still – as it was in its own time – under contestation” (1992: 178).

What both narratives share are the basic characteristics and limits of earlier approaches (with their focus on the rational and strategic use of resources and political opportunities by social movements) and later ones (with their focus on the more ideational, discursive, subjective, and symbolic elements and processes which help account for why people/groups mobilize and act collectively to effect change).
Key aspects of contentious collective action While a comprehensive account of the evolving perspectives in the field of social movement research is well beyond the scope of this study, we will identify some key concepts central to an understanding of how and why early feminisms came to position themselves in different (often conflicting) ways. The selective focus of this study is on the media of social movements – the functions of the feminist press in this period – but our goal in the process is to highlight features and contributions of feminist protest which have been obscured or unproductively framed in the past.
