5.0 out of 5 stars The Hard Way Up - excellent! 13 Feb 2003
Format:Hardcover
A really good autobiographal read. This amazing lady lived through some pivotal moments in the history of women's emancipation in England, forging friendships with suffragettes and other major influencers of the day. Her insight into the lot of working classes is acute and the writing style superb. Anyone who has enjoyed Helen Forrester's autobiographal books would also enjoy this book. Its a shame its out of print. I had a copy which I leant out and which unfortunately wasn't returned, but can't wait to buy another copy. If you get the chance its well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An inspirational read 18 April 2011
By geek536
Format:Hardcover
I saw this book mentioned in Andrew Marr's "The Making of Modern Britain" and was lucky enough to be able to get a copy out of the county library store. Hannah Mitchell tells, in her own words, her life from a child of a farm labouring family in rural Derbyshire to one of the first female Councillors and Magistrates in Manchester, via time working in the Lancashire cotton trade, and most interestingly as an active player in the Suffragette and Independent Labour Party movements of the early 20th Century. Mitchell conveys the harsh conditions she lived under, while trying to reconcile the daily struggle to meet the demands of her family with her social conscience and desire to better herself and the lot of women and the working class poor in general. This is the tale of many tens of thousands of women from this time, who helped shape the Britain we live in today, but are mainly forgotten now. Highly recommended.
