About this book

Reviews

'In its consideration of a selection of periodicals relating to the women's suffrage campaign during the Edwardian age , such as Votes for Women , The Common Cause and The Freewoman , this book offers a wonderful reminder of the range and complexity of ideas circulating in the early feminist press . The chapter on the much-neglected journal The Englishwoman is particularly welcome." - Jane Purvis, THE

'The authors' varied disciplinary perspectives make this book engaging reading but do not interfere with the book's focus. This brief examination will serve as a catalyst for additional research on the suffrage movement.' - R. Ray, Mississippi State University
