Angela (anges) | 18 comments Feminist awareness seems to have nudged a few women to write biographical collections lately on women's achievements:

so far I have been disappointed with all of them but the plus is that they exist and that together they may provide good resources.

They have either opted for the short introduction or truncated version of a life.

Angela (anges) | 18 comments So I will post the books I have read with the key words of:
womens' biographies, achievement, gender issues, equality, equity, suffragists, vote for women, ;and some more will no doubt occur to me.]

Bookrapt | 2 comments Try 'Eliza and the White Camellia: A Story of Suffrage in New Zealand' by Debbie McCauley :)
