Overview

Norah Dacre Fox (aka Elam) was the General Secretary, chief organiser and spokeswoman for the the Women's Social and Political Union. Banished from the Suffragette Fellowship, she gained notoriety for joining Oswald Mosley's inner circle in the 1930s. Interned in Holloway Prison during both world wars, Norah's spirit of radical feminism was well suited to the revolutionary Britain of the early twentieth century. The authors attempt to understand how this serial militant who spent the first part of her life fighting for equality later turned to the dark forces of fascism, and they explore the long lasting emotional impact on their family. "Combining a family-history-mystery quest with a portrait of the latter days of the militant suffragette movement and the activities of the British Union of Fascists, this is a page-turner." (Elizabeth Crawford, Author, 'The Women's Suffrage Movement', Routledge, 1999)
