A slim but really informative intro to the suffragist and suffragette movements Excellent photographs, cartoons, extracts from diaries, newspapers, propaganda Amazing contrast in reporting between The Times and Daily Express Full of did you know details horrors of force feeding, hostile tactics of Asquith Churchill, women only given complete suffrage in Switzerland in 1971 88 years after New Zealand A timely reminder of what we owe to so few.
