Suffragettes Endured Many Challenges in their fight for women's equality. In this sweeping often-shocking series, historian Amanda Vickery (The Story Of Women And Art) tells the untold saga of British women's battles in the centuries-old war of women vs. men.

Vickery profiles key figures including Mary Wollstonecraft, the mother of feminism; Hannah More, who found ways for women to enter public life; and suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst. She visits the House Of Parliament, Queen Victoria's holiday home, and a livestock market where men once sold their wives at auction. And she converses frankly with other experts, among them current Member Of Parliament Stella Creasy and the son of Nancy Astor, the first female MP.

With passion and insight, Vickery guides us through history, from an early march for women's rights in 1649 to a notorious incident in 1738, when the Duchess of Queensberry crashed the House of Lords, to the militant activities of the Edwardian suffragettes and the modern-day campaigns that remind us the fight is not over yet.

Historian, writer, and broadcaster Amanda Vickery teaches early modern history at Queen Mary University of London. An award winning author, she also writes reviews for the Guardian and BBC Radio.
