Suffragettes and the Fight for the Vote

by Sarah Ridley
£9.99   paperback  Hachette Children's Group (2019)

Suffragettes and the Fight for the Vote by Sarah Ridley A fascinating book that tells the story of the campaign for votes for women in Britain.
 
This book tells the story of the campaign to get women the vote in Britain. Beginning by looking at the role of women in the 19th Century and ending with the continuing struggle for equal rights for women in all parts of society, this is an essential read for young people aged 10 plus to understand the history of the women's movement on suffrage. It includes the suffragists' campaign. The book includes photos of key people in the campaign such as Millicent Garrett Fawcett, Emmeline Pankhurst and Emily Wilding Davison and ephemera such as force-feeding equipment, banners and medallions.
 
The book was long-listed for the 2017 SLA information book award. It is published ahead of 2018 - a landmark year that marks the centenary of the Representation of the People Act. This finally gave the vote to some women for the first time (women over 30, who owned property) and also gave the vote to all men (up until then, only about two-thirds of men had the vote). The Houses of Parliament are celebrating this centenary with their 'Vote 100' project. 2018 will also be the 90th anniversary of women gaining full voting equality with men in 1928.
