While the First World War still raged on, another battle was finally seeing some results. In February 1918, British women over the age of 30 finally gained the right to vote in general elections. The hard-won victory was the result of a long struggle. This book takes up the story in the mid 19th century, when the first petition was presented to Parliament, and traces the fight for the vote through the work of suffragette organisations and the suffragettes. From peaceful demonstrations to violent campaigns and prison hunger strikes, the story is brought to life through fascinating historical photos and artefacts.
