‘Once they are aroused, once they are determined, nothing on earth and nothing in heaven will make women give way; it is impossible.’
A potted history of the women who pioneered feminism and changed the world.
One of 46 new books in the bestselling Little Black Classics series, to celebrate the first ever Penguin Classic in 1946. Each book gives readers a taste of the Classics’ huge range and diversity, with works from around the world and across the centuries – including fables, decadence, heartbreak, tall tales, satire, ghosts, battles and elephants.
As part of the Penguin 80 Books Classics series, The Suffragettes is a fabulous working document which highlights the battles that The Suffragettes fought in as they strived for women’s rights 100 years ago.
Besides legal documents it also has pictorial documentation of how the suffragettes tried to encourage other women to join their movement and also of the propaganda that they were constantly facing from those who wished to keep women suppressed.
The Suffragettes is a very interesting and basic study of feminism and a very interesting time in British history.
The Suffragettes by Penguin Classics is available now.
