Synopsis

Vintage Feminism: classic feminist texts in short form

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY JESS PHILLIPS

Soldier, criminal, militant, hooligan, revolutionary: these labels Emmeline Pankhurst took up and wore proudly in her long struggle for women’s suffrage. This shortened edition of her autobiography tells the inside story of this struggle: the tireless campaigning, the betrayals by men in power, the relentless round of arrests and hunger strikes, the horror of force-feeding. It is a reminder of the controversial means, the indomitable spirit and the sacrifices of life and liberty by which women won their political freedom.

ALSO IN THE VINTAGE FEMINIST SHORTS SERIES:

The Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir
A Vindication of the Rights of Woman by Mary Wollstonecraft
The Beauty Myth by Naomi Wolf
A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf
