About the Book

The opposition of men to women's suffrage is well-known. However, men's support for women's suffrage is a neglected subject. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, over one thousand men were prepared to join societies and actively work for women's suffrage, whilst many other men offered support. The Men's Share?, edited by Angela John and Claire Eustance, examines who these men were, how they organized themselves and how they put pressure on the government.


'…this is a valuable and suggestive volume of essays which will add a fresh emphasis to the discussion of women's enfranchisement in Britain.' - History Review
