Suffragette by David Roberts

Introduced by BBC presenter Lauren Laverne, this 128 page book is fully colour illustrated on every page, and has been completed with advice from June Purvis, Emeritus Professor of Women’s and Gender History at the University of Portsmouth.

The year 2018 marks a century since the first women won the vote in the United Kingdom, and Suffragette tells the story of their fight.  This is a tale of astounding bravery, ingenuity and strength.

David’s writing is accessible and his artwork full of rich detail, bringing to life the many vivid characters of the women’s suffrage movement – from the militant activist and wheelchair user Rosa May Billinghurst to the world-famous Emmeline Pankhurst, Millicent Fawcett and Emily Wilding Davison.

Covering the whole range of female and male suffragist experiences – from aristocrats to the middle and working class as well as a look at the global struggle for universal suffrage, Suffragette: The Battle for Equality makes a fantastic introduction to a fascinating topic.  David Roberts’ exquisite artwork and clear, exceptionally well-researched text make this the perfect gift.

Peer & Press Reviews

I’ve seen nothing quite like this large, lavish non-fiction history of the Suffragettes.  Told through the meticulously researched pictures and words of David Roberts, this is the story of their bravery and ingenuity, covering the whole range of suffragette experience, from working-class to aristocrat.

The Bookseller

Among more than a score of new children’s books about the fight for votes for women, many of them admirable, this labour of love stands out as the most beautiful and illuminating.  Pictures and text are exceptionally elegant, clear and entertaining.

Sunday Times, Culture

A lavish colour hardback replete with his distinctive, perceptive art, he [David Roberts] offers fascinating insights into the complex history of the movement, looking beyond the stereotypes to include working-class women and diverse stories from around the world.
