This was a wonderful find dumped on the library shelves in a hideous black cover and then on opening the pages there was the original Women's Press red cover with the portcullis smashed and freedom beckoning! Evelyn Sharp records the stupidity and bullishness of the suffragettes opponents and the pain, pathos and humour - Penelope's Early Victorian mother being a hilarious character - of these brave women who were prepared to stand in rainy streets being laughed at and abused, selling 'Votes for Women', open a shop and run it not too well, attempt to get through to Parliament to protest and suffer prision sentences. It contains a deeply socialist-feminist agenda and a determination that there will be a better world. As one of the women says '‘Saints and sinners meet in the goals’. Suffragettes forced to be sinners, and sinners who are not given a chance to be saints – oh, it’s easy to see why we two should be fellow-creatures!’
