Reviews

Fierce, fresh and feminist, Fern Riddell tells the story of Suffragette Kitty Marion in a way that fizzes and shocks. Exciting, twisty and very very timely. - Lucy WorsleyPassionate and brilliant, a compelling portrait of an extraordinary woman in extraordinary times. - Richard OsmanA compelling, passionate and timely account of a fierce and extraordinary woman. In 2018, Kitty Marion's story is required reading. - Helen CastorA brilliant political biography of the dangerous, dramatic and uncompromisingly political life of an incredible woman. Viscerally written this book is a powerful reminder that women were not given the vote, they demanded it and took it by force as much as by persuasion. - David OlusogaFern has brought to life the drama and tension of suffragette attacks in early 20th century Britain. Never before have I thought of the noise, colour, sounds, smells and sensations of fighting for women's rights to the vote, sexual and legal freedoms. She creates a textured tapestry of bustling streets and a myriad of personalities, amidst which devastating bomb attacks are given a potency so often eroded from history books. The world needs more books like this - books that challenge where we are now, and the brave, dangerous, fascinating women who got us here. - Janina RamirezThe tale this book tells is as explosive as its title. Riddell's vivid prose follows this unsung heroine in her fight for birth control and suffrage. - IndependentAn exhilarating slice of incredibly relevant history. Highly recommended. - Matt Haig
