This cleareyed, evenhanded presentation gives the overall story a veracity that lets shine the bravery of all the women (and men) who were ridiculed, imprisoned, force-fed, and beaten for their determination to win the franchise. This compelling story of determination and persistence can't help but inspire today's readers.
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Roberts's (Rosie Revere, Engineer) handsomely illustrated history of the battle for women's suffrage in the U.K. and the U.S. makes its American debut in time for the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment...Vignettes of female suffragists from around the world and a bibliography wrap up this engaging, stirring chronicle.
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

This book is a great historic guide to women's fight for voting privileges and equal citizenship in the UK. The suffragettes fought hard until they won, even if some did not live to see their victory! The illustrations are funny and help breathe life into this nonfiction text.
