Diane Atkinson - Rise Up Women!

Key facts

Genre: Event with live speech-to-text

Author: Diane Atkinson


Marking the centenary of (limited) female suffrage, this talk charts women’s fight for the vote through the lives of those who took part, in a timely celebration of an extraordinary struggle. Diane Atkinson’s detailed and authoritative Rise Up, Women!, has already become the definitive history of the suffragettes and is both moving and thrilling. What comes through is the power and courage of the bloody difficult women who continued to challenge the establishment and at the same time changed the perception of women, for the better, before the war in 1914.
