Synopsis

Uncontrollable Women is a history of radical, reformist and revolutionary women between the outbreak of the French Revolution in 1789 and the passing of the Great Reform Act in 1832. Very few of them are well-known today; some were unknown even in their own day. All of them contributed something to the world we now inhabit.

At a time when women were supposed to leave politics to men they spoke, wrote, marched, organised, asked questions, challenged power structures, sometimes went to prison and even died. History has not usually been kind to them, and they have frequently been pushed into asides or footnotes, dismissed as secondary, or spoken over, for, or through by men and sometimes other women. In this book, they take centre stage in both their own stories and those of others, and in doing so bring different voices to the more familiar accounts of the period. These women and many others played a part in developing political ideas and freedoms as we know them today, and some fought battles which still remain to be won or raised questions that are still unresolved. These are their stories.

Nan Sloane is the Director of the Centre for Women and Democracy. She is Training Coordinator of the Labour Women's Network, a former Labour councillor and Regional Director of the Labour Party. She is currently a member of Fawcett Society's 'Does Local Government Work for Women' Commission. She is the author In Our Own Words: A Dictionary of Women's Political Quotations; A Great Act of Justice: The Flapper Election and After, lead author of Sex & Power 2014: Who Runs Britain?, and the author of The Women in the Room: Labour's Forgotten History.
