Suffrage is the right to vote. It is commonly associated with the women’s suffrage movement of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Suffragettes were members of militant women’s organisations in the early 20th century who, under the banner “Votes for Women”, fought for the right to vote in public elections. “Suffragette City” is a song by David Bowie, originally from “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars” album in 1972. 😉
