Synopsis

Freedom. Equality. Sisterhood. WOMEN IN BATTLE is the book for anyone who wants to learn as much as possible about the history of feminism in as short a time as possible.

Presented as a graphic novel and spanning 150 years of recent history, WOMEN IN BATTLE celebrates the fight for women's rights all over the world.

Topics include the suffragette movement, female world leaders, abortion and contraception, gay marriage and #MeToo.

Slowly but surely we are making progress. We need only dare to be heard.
A truly uplifting resource, given extra depth and humanity by the engaging illustrations
[This] whistle-stop tour of 150 years of feminism feels globally relevant and welcoming
We must teach children not just about great women in history but also the struggles and inequalities that stopped other women from becoming great. Highly recommend this beautiful new book
