First published to coincide with the centenary of British women gaining the vote in February 2018, Rise Up, Women! has cemented Diane Atkinson’s status as the most authoritative voice writing on the suffrage movement today.
Celebrating the lives of the women who answered the call to ‘Rise Up’ – a richly diverse group of actresses and mill-workers, teachers and doctors, bootmakers and sweated workers, Rise Up, Women! is a stirring chronicle of their grace, resilience and determination that changed the world for ever.
‘Pretty much a definitive history of the suffragette … It’s a huge achievement that her narrative, so crisp and clear, is never less than enthralling’ Rachel Cooke, Observer
