An exquisitely illustrated history of the women's suffrage movement, created by the New York Times bestselling David Roberts and introduced by BBC presenter Lauren Laverne.

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 makes a fantastic introduction to a fascinating topic. David Roberts' exquisite artwork and clear, exceptionally well-researched text make this the perfect gift.

This large gift 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.

About the Author

David Roberts has earned great acclaim for his distinctive illustrations. David's work includes collaborations with his sister Lynn on retellings of several classic fairy stories - their book Little Red was shortlisted for the 2005 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal. David's first collaboration with Julia Donaldson - Tyrannosaurus Drip - was published in 2007 by Macmillan, and since then they have worked together on several other picture books. David is also the illustrator of the New York Times bestselling Rosie Revere, Engineer and Ada Twist, Scientist written by Andrea Beaty.

David Roberts has been fascinated by the suffragists since his school days, and his illustrated history of the fight for women's suffrage is a real passion project.
