A woman leads an armed rebellion.

A Century of Female Revolution: From Peterloo to Parliament

by Glynis Cooper Author

A Century of Female Revolution claims that the100 years from 1819-1919 were the most remarkable in the history of womankind. If you don't agree with that statement, listen up. At the beginning of that time period, women had no rights, no status, no options, no votes, no acceptance in higher education or at many workplaces. Women were not even legally considered to be a persons. But one hundred years later, women had gained full legal rights and status; a place in higher education; in short, they had achieved universal suffrage. Dive into that fascinating century in this book.
