Rebel Girls: Their Fight for the Vote

by Jill Liddington - £16.99  Time Warner Books (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781844081684 | ISBN 10: 1844081680

When she was arrested, sixteen-year-old Huddersfield weaver Dora Thewlis was catapulted onto the tabloid front pages as 'Baby Suffragette'.
Dancer Lilian Lenton waited till her twenty-first birthday - then determined to burn two buildings a week until the Liberal government granted women the vote.
Drawing upon brand-new evidence, Jill Liddington tracks the story of the campaigners who took their message across the north of England to the remotest Yorkshire dales and fishing harbours, and offers us an utterly original history of suffrage.

"An important contribution... giving long due recognition to forgotten women... capturing their passion and placing it in the larger social and political context of the times."
(Antonia Byatt, The Women's Library)
