Suffragetto–The Suffragette Boardgame from 1917

Interesting look at a suffragette-themed board game from the early 20th century,

In the 1917 board game “Suffragetto,” two players compete as either police or suffragettes to defend their political bases — the House of Commons or Royal Albert Hall, which suffragettes rented out around 30 times between 1908 and 1913 to rally for women’s votes.

Presumably critics of games like this at the time retorted that “actually, it’s about ethics in journalism.”
