correspondence with The Times in reply to Goldwin Smith’s arguments that ‘law rests at bottom on force, and force is rule’, and that this force was therefore central to the maintenance of the empire. Fawcett did not respond to Smith’s ideas on the question of the use of force, but argued instead that in contrast 21 ‘ the truest form of patriotism ’ to Smith’s expectation, women would not vote ‘like a flock of sheep’ for the Conservatives, and that women had been voting in the Isle of Man, and in the territory of Wyoming in the US, without the collapse of the rule of law
