Helen and her friends were very interested in political ideas. In 1909, Helen joined the suffragist movement. Suffragists wanted equal treatment for women, including the right to vote—which was granted in 1920. In the same year, she also became a socialist. Helen believed that society should be based on people's needs, not on their power or money. Over the years, Helen would be criticized for her political opinions.
