Feminism and Democracy by Sandra Stanley Holton

Book Description

Previous studies of the women's suffrage movement in Britain have focused their attention primarily on the activities of the well-known Women's Social and Political Union, and its famous leading figures, Emmeline and Christabel Pankhurst. This book offers a reinterpretation of the movement, looking instead at the lesser-known provincial suffragists, especially that group, identified by Sandra Holton as the 'democratic suffragists', who guided the campaigns of the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies. These women directed their efforts towards integrating the demand for the vote with other calls for a more democratic society, and, Dr Holton argues, it was their successful attempt to bring about an alliance between the suffrage movement and the labour movement that ensured the ventual winning of the vote for women.

Quaker Women by Sandra Stanley Holton Quaker Women, Paperback (August 2006)

This study examines such claims through the story of middle-class women Friends from among the kinship circle created by the marriage in 1839 of Elizabeth Priestman and the radical Quaker statesman, John Bright.
