EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from the Attercliffe By-election of 1909 captures a momentous turning point in Sheffield's political history. The election flier, titled "Votes for Women" not only highlights the suffragette movement but also signifies an important milestone in gender equality. The by-election marked the triumph of Joseph Pointer, who became Sheffield's first Labour Member of Parliament. His victory was a significant step forward for the working class and their representation in government. Sadly, his time in office was cut short when he passed away in 1914, leaving behind a legacy that would inspire future generations. Amongst other candidates were S. King-Farlow representing the Conservative party, Richard Lambert from the Liberal party, and A Muir-Wilson as an Independent Tariff Reform candidate. Each contender brought their own unique perspectives to this fiercely contested race. Preserved at Sheffield Local Studies Library MP 105 L, this historical artifact provides us with a glimpse into the vibrant world of early twentieth-century politics. The accompanying cartoon adds a touch of humor to an otherwise serious affair, showcasing how political campaigns utilized visual media even back then. As we reflect on this image today, it serves as a reminder of our progress towards equal representation and reminds us to continue fighting for social justice and inclusivity within our democratic systems.
