After masses of nominations and much lively debate Hay Fest came up with the top 100 books by women over the last century. I intend to read my way through the list!
Women’s Suffrage Movement
A hasty dispatch to keep you apprised of my second day at Hay.
2018 marks a century since the first women won the vote in the United Kingdom, and this children’s book tells the story of their fight. ‘Suffragette’ is a tale of astounding bravery, ingenuity and strength.
In honour of the centennial of women gaining the right to vote in the UK, we look at the life of someone who fought relentlessly to achieve it.
