Dear Ms. Osborn,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
In the U.S. woman suffrage movement, it's "suffragist." Although the two terms are used interchangeably, they do not mean the same thing. In fact, "suffragette" was a derogatory term for suffragists. Suffragists in the UK embraced the term for their movement, but only a small minority of American suffragists did - to most it was an insult.
