This very important book has brought to life the adventurous days of these young women's fight for justice. Their brilliant, courageous story might have slipped through the cracks of history but for this work by Jill Liddington, and the debt owed by half of today's voters may never have been acknowledged. This book made me very angry that treatment such as imprisonment and force-feeding was dished out routinely on people who only wanted what we today take for granted. And this happened in my father's lifetime! A superb book.
This is a truly superb memoir. It made me laugh at times, and a page later it had me on the edge with fear of what was to come. The writer did well to come out with her sanity intact, and has written a beautifully scripted and searingly honest book. One to tuck away and treasure.
