On 3 April 1911, the militant suffragettes decided to boycott the census and refused to be counted. Many female householders wrote 'no vote, no census' on their forms, and some campaigners arranged to stay away from home on the day that the census was taken. In towns and cities across Scotland, women met together in cafes and offices, and organised musical and dramatic entertainment that lasted throughout the night.
