2018 will mark the centenary of the women gaining the right to vote in Germany and Britain. I have long been fascinated by the history of women’s suffrage and thought it would be a great way to celebrate the anniversary by looking at the lead up, the campaigns, the people involved in the movement.
Of course, this is a topic that could easily consume a whole year of reading by itself – and quite rightly so – but chances are that I will want to read other books, too. So, I will try and direct my reading towards 4 main texts – each profiling the struggle for women’s right to vote in Germany, Britain, the US, and one specifically on Scotland – because the movement here (Scotland) actually differed slightly to the more famous one in England (and because it was written by my old university prof.)
As one book always (always!!) leads to another, I expect that there will be a few other books (that I already own, thus chipping away at Mt. TBR) and links that will make an appearance during this reading project (which I will list below as I go along).
