Votes for Women by Diane Atkinson
Book DescriptionIn 1918 women in Britain finally won the vote after a long and determined fight. The struggle of these courageous women of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries is examined in Atkinson's new study. The author compares and contrasts two very different campaigns: the battle waged by the militant Suffragettes and the persistent though less well-known activities of the Suffragists who campaigned peacefully but doggedly for the vote. A handful of fascinating and previously unpublished photographs from the Museum of London Collection are dispersed throughout the text.
