About This Book

'A wonderful, inspiring story told with scholarship, passion and wit' – Miriam Margolyes

'A must-read' – Independent on Sunday

With an introduction by Dr Helen Pankhurst.

An illuminating and riveting exploration of the women's movement in Britain, and the extraordinary women behind it.

From the passing of the Marriage and Divorce Act in 1857 to all women attaining the vote in 1928, the struggle for suffrage in the United Kingdom was to be fought using the weapons of intellect, searing rhetoric, and violence in the streets. Ordinary women rose up to defy the roles prescribed by their society to become heroes in the battle for equality.

Using anecdotes and accounts by both famous and hitherto lesser-known suffragettes and suffragists, March, Women, March explores how the voices of women came to be heard throughout the land in the pursuit of equal voting rights for all women. Lucinda Hawksley brings the main protagonists of the women's movement to life, sharing diary extracts and letters that show the true voices of these women, while their portrayals in literature and art – as well as the media reports of the day – show just how much of an impact these trailblazers made.

'An accessible and engaging guide to the original women's movement' – Daily Telegraph
