Product Description

Review

A gripping and rather magnificent new book (THE TIMES)

A richly detailed history. (DAILY TELEGRAPH)

This highly enjoyable history gives an excellent sense of the vivid feuds, ideological divides and disputes which fractured the enlivened the progressive Victorian feminist movement (SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

[A book] shot through with Phillip s' customary clariy... [she] shows beautifully that the vote was really symbolic of a far wider range of issues on which women were struggling to find a public voice (EVENING STANDARD)

Book Description

* A riveting account of the passions behind the fight for female suffrage: both a story of social and sexual revolutionary upheaval and a fascinating battle of ideals that continues apace today.
