The Men's Share?: Masculinities, Male Support and Women's Suffrage in Britain, 1890-1920

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Outlines the transformation of men and concepts of masculinity in response to the women's suffrage movement in Britain, drawing on newspapers, diaries, letters, speeches, and Home Office papers. Demonstrates that male support for the movement was both extensive and diverse, and highlights the equivocal nature of much of this support and the reluctance of many male activists to challenge their own masculinity. Includes b&w photos. For those interested in gender role, feminism, and the gendered construction of politics during the era. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
