Product Overview

The suffrage story, set in the political and cultural context of war, is lit vividly by some fascinating personalities. New research challenges accepted accounts. This study traces the resurgence of a conservative suffrage leadership, questions the inevitability of the narrow franchise granted to women in 1918, and suggests that something important was lost, especially to the Labour party and to feminism, when a broad vision of democracy and patriotism became a casualty of war, self-interest and jingoism.
