Informative and Entertaining - Highly recommended
on 13 May 2013
Lucinda Hawksley's book chronicles the struggles women faced and the hardships they endured to obtain the right to vote in the United Kingdom. I highly recommended March, Women, March for its insight into the lives of the women who refused to let men 'keep them in their place'. First and foremost, March, Women, March provides a historical account of the women's movement but it is as much a 'good read' as documentary.
Hawksley's book contains intriguing excerpts from letters and diaries of the time and brings to light a number of lesser known facts including Winston Churchill's schemes to undermine the movement and the fact that women in New Zealand and Australia received the right to vote over thirty years before women in the U.K.
March, Women, March recounts the persecutions women suffered and the extreme measures they were forced to take in their quest for equality. Thoroughly interesting, well-written and immensely educational - March, Women, March is a must read for women of all ages and a great book for women to share with their male friends, sons and spouses!
