Sally Heathcote: Suffragette is a gripping inside story of the campaign for the vote. A tale of loyalty, love and courage, set against a vividly realized backdrop of Edwardian Britain, it follows the fortunes of a maid-of-all-work swept up in the feminist militancy of the era.
Sally Heathcote: Suffragette is another stunning collaboration from Costa-award winners, Mary and Bryan Talbot. Teamed up with acclaimed illustrator, Kate Charlesworth, Sally Heathcote’s lavish pages bring history to life.
“Sally’s fantastic! Apart from the rollicking story and the ‘look’, what I really relish is the accuracy. Wow.”
Elizabeth Crawford, women’s suffrage historian. Author of The Women’s Suffrage Movement: a reference guide and editor of Campaigning for the Vote: Kate Parry Frye’s Suffrage Diary
