About this book

The primary objective of Maguire's study is to consider the evolution of women's role in the Conservative Party since the time of Disraeli and try to assess whether it has always been one of progress. To do this she examines not only the attitude of women to the party and the official attitude of the party towards women but also the degree of acceptance that Conservative men have shown towards women members. It considers women at all levels, from that of the voter to the grassroots organization to national politics.

She is also the author of Anglo-American Policy towards the Free French, an analysis of relations between the two major western allies and Charles de Gaulle's movement during World War II.

Reviews

'Maguire's entertaining analysis of the contribution of women to the Conservative party is an easy read...good on statistical fact...The quotes are lively and evocative.' - Ann Widdecombe, The Sunday Times
