Suffrage is the right to vote, or the exercise of that right.

The British women's suffrage movement, which campaigned to obtain the vote for women, began in 1867 with the formation of the National Society for Women's Suffrage.

In 1897, the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies (NUWSS) was formed; its members were known as suffragists.

In 1903, a splinter group of NUWSS formed a more militant organisation known as the Women's Social and Political Union; its members were known as suffragettes.

Shafts, with its modern-day sexual connotation, sounds an unlikely name for a suffrage magazine, but it did actually exist. Other 19th Century feminist periodicals included the Women's Herald, Englishwoman's Review and Time and Tide.
