This was an interesting view on this movement. The author was not afraid to dispel the myths that surround Mrs Pankhurst and the W.S.P.U. Known as the suffragettes. It is an easy and compelling read from start to finish and had me hooked throughout. A throughly researched book with the facts laid bare and at last the spotlight shone on this movement as their actions speak for themselves. This is a must read for all interested in the women’s fight for equal rights.

Webb manages to illustrate the motivations behind the radical action of the suffragettes and he shows how the WSPU was run and the tyrannical rule of Emmeline ...more
