About this book

This collection explores the aftermath of the Representation of the People Act, which gave some British women the vote. Experts examine the paths taken by both former-suffragists as well as their anti-suffragist adversaries, the practices of suffrage commemoration, and the changing priorities and formations of British feminism in this era.

Reviews

'For the contributors to this collection, the "road to equality" has been marked by victories, yes, but also by struggles, frustrations, misrepresentations and compromises. It may not be the narrative that Viscountess Rhondda had hoped for, but it is certainly a sobering account of rights in action.'

- Arianne Chernock, Boston University, USA
