Hi Kate,
"Howards End" was first published in 1910 as you probably know. Seven years earlier, in 1903, the suffragette movement (N.B. the militant wing of it) had started campaigning. You could read "The Suffragette Movement" by Sylvia Pankhurst, or a book like "The New Women and the Old Men" (very interesting!), by Ruth Brandon. Also, books about the Victorian/Edwardian period will be of interest. Hope this helps,
