During the first decades of the 20th century, many women took a lively interest in politics in pursuit of the vote. The suffragette movement was active until 1914 when the outbreak of war brought a temporary halt to their campaign. Pressure resumed after 1918 but it was not until 1928 that all women over the age of 21 received equal voting rights with men.
