It is a humbling experience to read this book which brings to life the extraordinary courage and downright bloody-mindedness of those women who fought so hard to gain us the right to vote. Fisher's cool, succinct style lets the horrifying facts of Emily Davison's imprisonment and suffering speak for themselves. And the mystery surrounding her death adds a 'why-she-dunnit' thread to the narrative which makes this biography all the more compelling. Highly recommended.
