Hearts And Minds: The Untold Story of the Great Pilgrimage and How Women Won the Vote

by Jane Robinson - £9.99  Transworld Publishers Ltd (Black Swan) (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781784161620 | ISBN 10: 1784161624

Set against the background of the campaign for women to win the vote, this is a story of the ordinary people effecting extraordinary change.
 
1913: the last long summer before the war. The country is gripped by suffragette fever. These impassioned crusaders have their admirers; some agree with their aims if not their forceful methods, while others are aghast at the thought of giving any female a vote.
 
Meanwhile, hundreds of women are stepping out on to the streets of Britain. They are the suffragists: non-militant campaigners for the vote, on an astonishing six-week protest march they call the Great Pilgrimage. Rich and poor, young and old, they defy convention, risking jobs, family relationships and even their lives to persuade the country to listen to them.
 
Fresh and original, full of vivid detail and moments of high drama, Hearts and Minds is both funny and incredibly moving, important and wonderfully entertaining.
