Endorsements

Pre-publication endorsements for Diane Atkinson's latest book:
Rise Up, Women! The Remarkable Lives of the Suffragettes

“A thrilling and inspiring read! For too long these extraordinary women have been hidden
from history. Rise Up, Women! should be a standard text in all schools. And will be a treasured handbook for today's feminists”

Harriet Harman, MP

“This is the untold story of the women's suffrage movement at last revealed in glorious 360 detail. Rise Up, Women! is heartbreaking, inspiring and incredibly rewarding to read”
Dr Amanda Foreman, author of Georgiana

“Patiently, skilfully and empathetically, Diane Atkinson gives us the fullest, most insightful history yet of the suffragette movement and the courageous women who drove it forward to eventual fruition”
David Kynaston, author of Austerity Britain

“Rise up and buy this book! Diane Atkinson has produced an instant classic of feminist history. All the spectacular drama and intrigue of the decade long militant campaign
for the women's vote is staged in this immensely readable suffragette epic”

Rachel Holmes, author of Eleanor Marx

“A shocking and yet curiously exhilarating history of a group of women from all classes who simply refused to be crushed … Atkinson makes us feel so proud of that fight”
Miranda Seymour, author of Noble Endeavours

“Published to coincide with the centenary of women gaining the vote, this impressive group biography covers the lives of more than 200 Suffragettes and the role they played in securing the vote, through fifty years of campaigning. While she pays fitting tribute to such high-profile campaigners as the Pankhurst, Emily Davison and Annie Kenney (the mill girl from Oldham who became the poster girl of the Women's Social and Political Union), Atkinson also celebrates the contribution of many lesser-known figures, such as Dora Thewlis, a 16-year-old weaver from Huddersfield; boot-makers Alice and her husband Alfred Hawkins from Leicester, and music hall artiste Kitty Marion.”
