Science and Suffrage in the First World War

Patricia Fara

  • Includes substantial discussion of Ray Strachey, who was Virginia Woolf's sister-in-law, and an eminent suffrage leader
  • Includes biographical accounts of prominent scientific women who have been neglected (including Isabel Emslie Hutton, Ida Smedley, Helen Gwynne Vaughan, Helena Gleichen, and Martha Whiteley) enlivened by quotations from their letters
  • Using original archival research, Patricia Fara unearths forgotten aspects of the War, especially the historically neglected Eastern Front
