  • The Church League for Women's Suffrage (CLWS) was an organisation campaigning for women's suffrage in the United Kingdom. It was founded by the Reverend Claude Hinscliff in 1909, and he was its secretary for a long time. Other founding members included Margaret Nevinson and Olive Wharry. The league was started in London, but by 1913 it had branches across England, in Wales and Scotland and Ireland. The first woman to preach in a Church of Ireland church, which was done with the approval of the Archbishop of Dublin and the church's governors, was Edith Picton-Turbervill. She was speaking in Ireland under the auspices of the CLWS. Notable members included Frances Balfour andLouise Creighton and the more militant Muriel Matters and , the outstanding Maude Royden, Lady Constance Lytton and Emily Wilding Davison. Claude Hinscliff and C. Baumgarten (Baumgarten was also part of the CLWS) conducted the funeral service of Emily Davison at St George's, Bloomsbury. The Irish Church had resisted the CLWS because it refused to denounce the behavior of militant suffragettes. By 1913 Florence Canning led the executive committee and she was one of six of the thirteen members identified for their militancy. (en)
