I’ve tried to read a few historical books and this is one of the first that has grabbed my attention so I can see it through to the end. I don’t know if it’s the subject matter or the writing but either way, it was an interesting read and an educational one as well.
Documenting the story of women searching, campaigning and battling for equal terms, laws and votes as men with suffragettes the key to the story. I’ve heard of people chaining themselves to the railings, of course, but this goes far deeper. I hadn’t realised the fight for equality started so early on, and that it took so long!
A fascinating book, well balanced and showing the good, the bad and the ugly of the suffragist and suffragette movement, and those that opposed the cause.
