This is a history of the suffrage movement in Britain from the beginnings of the first sustained campaign in the 1860s to the winning of the vote for women in 1918.

The book focuses on a number of figures whose role in this agitation has been ignored or neglected.

These include the free-thinker Elizabeth Wolstenholme Elmy; the founder of the women's movement in the United States, Elizabeth Cady Stanton; the working class orator, Jessie Craigen; and the socialist suffragists, Hannah Mitchell and Mary Gawthorpe.

Through the lives of these figures Holton uncovers the complex origins of the movement and associated issues of gender.
