I am researching the women's anti-suffrage movement across the British empire in the period c. 1880-1920. The project seeks to ask why women did not want enfranchisement, why they did not want other women across the empire to be enfranchised, and what this can reveal about notions of local, national, and imperial governance in this period. My research is supervised by Professor Senia Paseta, and generously supported by the AHRC OOC DTP, Clarendon Fund, and University College. I completed my undergraduate degree in History at Pembroke College, Oxford, and my Master’s degree, also in History, at the University of Manchester. Before starting my DPhil, I spent some time working within Access, Outreach and Widening Participation to higher education, a field in which I retain a keen interest.
