Marking the centenary of female suffrage, author Diane Atkinson charts the history of women's fight for the vote through the lives of those who took part. Led by Emmeline Pankhurst and her daughters, Christabel and Sylvia, and backed by women of all ages and class, the suffragettes and their actions would come to define protest movements for generations to come.
