Product Description

Review

Exhilarating - admirably lucid - Reading about the wild hopes of these early 20th-century pioneers, you cannot fail to be moved by the sheer exuberance of their imaginations. --Kathryn Hughes, Guardian

Ambitious and eloquent - Rowbotham has a marvellous gift for explication and an eye for the illuminating quotation. --Elaine Showalter, Daily Telegraph

Fascinating - As the 21st century falters forward with faith wars and economic collapse, women need to be at the forefront of reimagining our world. This book is a timely reminder that we have been here before. --Jeanette Winterson, The Times

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A very well researched and presented book by Sheila Rowbotham. It is packed full of rich quotes and connects developments in UK and the U.S. in all areas of Suffrage and the Women's Movement. However, although a very good read in the early chapters where jumping too and forth across the pond worked well, in later chapters, I found an over concentration on the U.S. The dynamic read seemed to wane towards the end of the book. I had the feeling Sheila's enthusiasm had run dry, but material was included to fill out the book and make it marketable for the U.S. market too. However, a very important contribution to this subject and I recommend without hesitation.

And these are not just the women that we always read about like Emma Goldman 30 Oct. 2014
By Louise Milone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is a gold mine for anyone researching first wave feminism in the UK and US. Rowbotham looks at women on both sides of the Atlantic who were deep in the struggle for social justice. And these are not just the women that we always read about like Emma Goldman. Rowbotham writes about the women like those who worked out of the settlement houses making huge strides in changing lives. For anyone looking at a book to get them started in researching the feminists of the turn of the last century, this well researched book is a great starting place. Rowbotham gives us about 40 pages of notes and over 10 pages of bibliography. The book is well written, an engaging read and provides a wealth of referrals to secondary and primary sources on these important, inspiring women.
