Maroula Joannou, June Purvis
Manchester University Press, 1998 - Social Science - 227 pages
A collection of essays presenting recent feminist scholarship on the suffrage movement, illustrating its complexity and diversity. The text combines historical reappraisal with accounts of the culture of the women's suffrage movement and includes studies on the neglected groups that participated in the campaign. These groups include: the Women's Franchise League; the Women's Freedom League; the Women's Tax Resistance League; and the United Suffragists. This examination is accompanied by feminist research on the poetry, fiction and drama that emerged from women's struggle for the vote.
