Celebrating Women's Writing: Ten Recommended Reads on Women's Suffrage

February 2018 marks the celebration of 100 years of women’s right to vote and in celebration we’re gathering together 100 books by women which represent the wealth and diversity of women’s writing throughout history.

Here, in the first of our articles presenting our Waterstones Women’s 100, we bring together a selection of reading illuminating the history of women’s suffrage, including some of the best new writing for 2018.  These books form part of a continuing story. A recognition of how far we have come in the last hundred years, they also remind us of the importance of cherishing and using our hard-won rights today and how, in an era still mired in gender inequity, the fight for women’s equality is as relevant now as it was a century ago.

Rise Up Women! By Diane Atkinson, £23.99

Marking the centenary of female suffrage, this definitive history charts women's fight for the vote through the lives of those who took part. From actresses to mill-workers, Irish, Welsh, Scottish and English; a wealth of women's lives are brought together for the first time, in this meticulously researched, vividly rendered and truly defining biography of a movement.



Suffragettes By Joyce Marlow, £8.99

A comprehensive anthology of the long and bloody history of women's struggle to get the vote. Here is the story in the voices of the women themselves. Drawing on extracts from diaries, newspapers, letters, journals and books, Joyce Marlow has pieced together this inspiring, poignant and exciting history and the result is lively, comprehensive, surprising and triumphant.



Things a Bright Girl Can Do, by Sally Nicholls, £6.49

Through rallies and marches, in polite drawing rooms and freezing prison cells and the poverty-stricken slums of the East End, three courageous young women join the fight for the vote. Together and in love, the two girls start to dream of a world where all kinds of women have their place. But the fight for freedom will challenge them more than they ever could believe.
