History

All you ever wanted to know about women's history from the bestselling author. How far we have come! How far we - and men too- have yet to go. Exhilarating and inspiring for readers of all ages. Formerly published as Rebel Women

'They will have to choose between giving us freedom or giving us death'
So said,in 1913 ,the brilliant orator and suffragette ,Emmeline Pankhurst, just one of the inspiring women who won the vote for women.
She remains a heroine for those determined to go to any lengths to change our world and one of those inspirational souls who feature in Rosalind Miles' gallery of famous, infamous and little-know rebels.
We begin with the French Revolution when women took on the fraternite of man, then it's off to America to round up the rebels fighting side by side for freedom with their men, before heading back to Britain to witness the courage of the suffragettes. From Australia to Iceland, from India to China and from many other countries, we track women who - often at a very high cost to themselves - have stood up to age-old cruelties and injustices. Recording the important milestones in the long march of women towards equality through a colourful pageant of astonishing women, we chart the birth of modern womanhood. Women in sport, women in business, women in religion, women in politics and women in power - all female life is there.

We end in the present day thrilled with what women have done - and can and will do.


Give us Freedom is as brave and as brilliant as its heroines.
