startling detail and expose' of the first women's revolution,
By A Customer
This review is from: My Own Story (Hardcover)
Without rancor and without malice Emmeline Pankurst takes us inside the belly of patriarchal control of womens rights. First person prison accounts from Pankhurst reveal for the reader in shocking detail how badly women were treated during the push for sufferage. Pankhurst's leadership of the first womens movement is revealed through her look at the world around her. Pankhurst takes us through her growing militancy and enlarges our notion of what a long and difficult struggle it has been. My own life has been personally enriched from reading this book. Emmeline Pankhurst is my hero.
