In 1918, David Lloyd George's post-war government passed the Representation of the People Act, and for the first time women were included in the political process. Women now accounted for nearly 50 per cent of the electorate, but universal suffrage was a long way off, and women still had to face censure and discrimination in their professional and personal lives. Thankfully, those who had fought for women's rights in the suffrage movement did not give up, and continued their work tirelessly to improve the lives of women and provide them with opportunities they otherwise would not have had, some for a further 40 years. In this book, Mavis Curtis explores the work of 8 such women who helped to promote the cause of women's rights and social equality.
