Abstract

This text offers the first examination of women's political activity in Britain to span the period from the Glorious Revolution to the election of teh first female prime minister. It shows how women had worked in a variety of locations and organisations in the decades before the suffrage campaign, and that women's politics did not begin with the demand for a parliamentary vote. The volume also demonstrates how women's political activity continued after the achievement of equal suffrage in 1928 in a number of directions within and beyond Parliament. Key topics include:
Court politics in the age of Queene Mary and Queen Anne
Victorian 'pressure group' politics
suffrage campaigns from 1867 to 1928
the Women's Liberation Movement
A survey examining some of the areas of women's political activity in Britain from the period of the Glorious Revolution to the election of the first female prime minister.
