"The March of the Women evaluates anew the militant campaign of the Edwardian era, contrasting the sharp divisions over tactics among the London leadership with the more pragmatic approach a grass roots level. It shows how the Pankhursts and the WSPU managed to combine attacking the British Establishment and its values with tapping into it for support and funds; while at the other end of the spectrum the non-militants gathered support for the cause from the working-class and the emergent Labour Party."--BOOK JACKET.
