Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Drawing on novels, poetry, and autobiography, this anthology by British academic Norquay presents a rich diversity of voices from the suffrage crusade in Britain, from the leaders to the foot soldiers to even the movement's opponents.
A selection of literary texts from the early 20th century--drawing on novels, short stories, poetry, and autobiography--related to the women's campaign for the vote in Britain. The anthology includes not only the major figures in the campaign, but also the rank-and-file, as well as those who opposed women's suffrage, or simply observed the action. The introduction examines the sexual and textual politics of the writing. Distributed by St. Martin's Press. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
