How Women Won the Vote

by Lucinda Hawksley, Helen Pankhurst



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
A lively look at the British suffragettes who fought to win women the vote.
March, Women, March explores the women’s movement in Britain, and the courageous rebels who refused to accept their exclusion from political life. Beginning with the publication of Mary Wollstonecraft’s A Vindication of the Rights of Women in 1792 and moving to the suffragettes of the early twentieth century and beyond, Lucinda Hawksley traces the fight for equal rights. Her fascinating narrative incorporates diary extracts and letters that bring the movement’s main protagonists back to life, and examines how suffragettes were portrayed in literature, art, and the contemporary media.
