Susan Kingsley Kent’s Sex and Suffrage in Britain, 1860-1914 argues that women’s gender was defined as being entirely sexualized beings.

Susan Kingsley Kent’s Sex and Suffrage in Britain, 1860-1914 argues that women’s gender was defined as being entirely sexualized beings. The suffrage movement is portrayed by Kent as the female pursuit of obtaining sexual autonomy through economic independence and equal legal representation. The early campaign during the nineteenth century was not solely focused on obtaining suffrage.

by Susan Kingsley Kent. Although other historians have viewed the suffrage movement as aimed at exclusively political ends, she argues that such a categorization ignores many of the most compelling reasons why thousands of middle and upper-class women risked ostracism, obloquy, and, often, physical harm in the pursuit of the right to vote and why their efforts met with such intense opposition.

For-let there be no mistake about it-this movement was not primarily political; it was social, moral, psychological and profoundly religious. The feminist movement, especially the campaign for the suffrage, aimed to alter that perception so that women would no longer be objectified or defined essentially in terms of their bi ology and would no longer be victims of what they deemed to be male sexual tyranny. The difficulty for historians in hearing the explanations advanced by feminists lies in their conception of the relation of sexuality to politics.

Women's quest for the vote Kent argues, was indissolubly linked with other feminist demands for reform which would overturn the cultural constructions of masculinity and femininity and determined their powerlessness in both public and private.
