Vintage Feminism: classic feminist texts in short form
WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY JESS PHILLIPS
Soldier, criminal, militant, hooligan, revolutionary: these labels Emmeline Pankhurst took up and wore proudly in her long struggle for women's suffrage.
This shortened edition of her autobiography tells the inside story of this struggle: the tireless campaigning, the betrayals by men in power, the relentless round of arrests and hunger strikes, the horror of force-feeding.
It is a reminder of the controversial means, the indomitable spirit and the sacrifices of life and liberty by which women won their political freedom.
