An exquisitely illustrated history of the women's suffrage movement, created by the New York Times bestselling David Roberts and introduced by BBC presenter Lauren Laverne.
The year 2018 marks a century since the first women won the vote in the United Kingdom, and Suffragette tells the story of their fight. This is a tale of astounding bravery, ingenuity and strength.
David's writing is accessible and his artwork full of rich detail, bringing to life the many vivid characters of the women's suffrage movement – from the militant activist and wheelchair user Rosa May Billinghurst to the world-famous Emmeline Pankhurst, Millicent Fawcett and Emily Wilding Davison.
Covering the whole range of female and male suffragist experiences – from aristocrats to the middle and working class as well as a look at the global struggle for universal suffrage, Suffragette makes a fantastic introduction to a fascinating topic. David Roberts' exquisite artwork and clear, exceptionally well-researched text make this the perfect gift.
Fully colour illustrated on every page, Suffragette: The Battle for Equality has been completed with advice from June Purvis, Emeritus Professor of Women's and Gender History at the University of Portsmouth.
