Best Answer

The National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies was formed in England in 1897 to unite groups campaigning for votes for women by legal and political means. They were known as the Suffragists.

The Women's Social and Political Union was founded in England in 1903, breaking away from the NUWSS to campaign by more active means, including demonstrations, damage to property and disrupting political meetings. They were known as Suffragettes.
