This new edition has been updated to include the latest historical interpretations of key issues surrounding the suffragists and suffragettes. The text introduces the key figures involved in the women's suffrage movement and goes on to consider the arguments advanced by those who supported and those who opposed votes for women (in particluar, the response of men to the campaigns). The narrative also highlights the pace and extent of suffragist and suffragette activity, and assesses their contribution to the First World War and the extent to which women gained the vote as a result of their efforts during the conflict. The study guides have been revised in line with the requirements of current AS and A level modules, and provide a firm basis for answering source-based, extended-writing and essay questions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Utility as an educational resource 1 Mar 2001
By A Customer
The book is incredibly usefull as a background text to the new AS modern history syllabus topic as the chapters in the novel are mirrored by the headings under which the exam board set out their specification. It provides the points of view of all groups concerned with the period and so gives students an overview of the period. The book also helps to limit the extra amount of background reading needed as many quotes from Historians and participants in the period of history which are incredibly useful for quoting in an essay or exam question. However, although the book follows the syllabus carefully it often moves away from provideing a chronological list of events, which although is poor essay writing style it is very useful for the understanding of students. Overall an impressive and coherent novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very useful overview 28 Dec 2013
By Nabs
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a detailed and in depth study of the issue of women's rights. It has biographies of important figures and considers the implications of feminism from a variety of angles. I really found it very informative. A little more detail on the period from 1918-28 would have made this a complete compendium for the suffrage movement.
