Henry Nevinson, Evelyn Sharp, the Goulds and another pro-suffrage couple, Joseph and Margaret Clayton, believed that further prevarication was pointless and that a new mixed-sex society was the way forward. During December Evelyn and Henry joined in frequent discussions about the new society. On 9th January 1914, with Henry in the chair, the United Suffragists discussed a manifesto. Barbara Ayrton Gould became its first secretary and the committee, which included Evelyn, had equal numbers of men and women.
