Prudent Revolutionaries

Portraits of British Feminists between the Wars

Brian Harrison

A Clarendon Press Publication

Highlighting the first generation of women to have the vote in Britain during the 1920s and 1930s, this book presents a portrait gallery of sixteen prominent but very different feminists, and underlines the achievements of the British feminist movement in advancing women's political, occupational, and family roles at home and abroad.
