Votes for Women
June Purvis, Sandra Stanley Holton
Routledge, 2000 - History - 297 pages
A fascinating book that charts the history of the movement in Britain from the nineteenth century to the postwar period, assessing important figures such as the Pankhursts and the militant wing, Millicent Garrett Fawcett's involvement with the constitutional wing and Jennie Baines' link with international suffrage movements. The book examines the importance of the suffrage movement to women's general emancipation in the twentieth century, and discusses its role as a catalyst to women's social and political equality.
