Product description


Few books can boast of the right author meeting the right subject. Here is a glorious exception, which is part of Oakley's life work of refocusing the lens so that the role of women in establishing the welfare state is fully and justifiably recorded. --Frank Field, MP

A new book by Ann Oakley is always a landmark event and this one on the `dangerous women' of reform is irresistible. Read in one sitting, I'd like a sequel please! --Liz Stanley, University of Edinburgh

Brilliantly uncovers the extraordinary contributions to social reform and to campaigning for peace by women mostly forgotten by history. Many of these challenges to convention are still relevant today. --Baroness Tessa Blackstone
