This major contribution to women's history and gender studies describes the individuals involved in the political activism of the women's movement in the UK, Europe, the Commonwealth, and the US. Cheryl Law highlights the importance of the ""lost"" period between 1914 and 1960. Divided into three sections--the First World War and the 1920s; the 1930s to the 1960s; and the 1960s to the present day--the book includes biographical portraits of the major female activists and details of the institutions and operational networks set up to extend the social, political, and economic rights of women.
