Description

Women's quest for the vote Kent argues, was indissolubly linked with other feminist demands for reform which would overturn the cultural constructions of masculinity and femininity and determined their powerlessness in both public and private.

Reviews

`… a study that provides an insightful synthesis of recent work on the women's movement and that gives the issue of suffrage the importance it deserves.' - American Historical Review

`This book should rank among the most important works on the history of feminism.' - Suzanne Lebsock, Rutgers University
