Suffrage Days is an account of the British suffrage movement from its inception until its victory in 1918. It is based around the experiences of seven individuals whose participation in the British suffrage movement is little-known: Elizabeth Wolstenholme Elmy, Jessie Craigen, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Hannah Mitchell, Mary Gawthorpe, Laurence Housman, and Alice Clark. Through their stories and perceptions Sandra Stanley Holton addresses issues such as: a previously unacknowledged Radical-Liberal current in the nineteenth century movemen; the transatlantic links between Radical suffragists; the national and international significance of the Women's Franchise League; some nineteenth century origins of suffrage militancy; the relationship between emergent new masculine identities and suffrage politics; and the complex relationship between militant and constitutional suffragists. In a final chapter Holton examines the historiography of the suffrage movement.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This book... compels a re-evaluation of the whole (suffrage) movement, and its historiography... It is a must for anyone who wants to be informed about women's suffrage.'The Fawcett Library Newsletter

'This fine, impeccably researched book.'The Times Higher Education Supplement

'Her marvellous new book, Suffrage Days, is both sufficiently readable to engage new students' interest and sufficiently provocative in its aim and its fresh discoveries to engross old suffrage hands. Holton is a hard act to follow.'Jill Liddington, University of Leeds.

'A splendid job ... highly enjoyable.'Reviews in History
