Votes for women was only the beginning

Emmeline Pankhurst celebrated with Google Doodle on the, er, 156th anniversary of her birth. The Suffrage movement was a sea-change in politics here, with plenty of drama and action. And altering history so it failed... well, that change probably would not last much past the Great War, but changing the balance of equality could really mess with social history for the century since.

Meryl Streep is to portray Mrs. Pankhurst on film soon, but for Doctor Who, perhaps go for the Up The Women version played by Sandi Toksvig in an an enormous hat.
