About this item
100 years ago women in the UKwon the vote and 50 years ago the Women’s Liberation Movement began a sustainedcampaign for equal rights. Eva Tutchell and John Edmonds draw upon historical perspectives and contemporaryinterviews to convey what it felt like to be in the heart of the campaigns—theexcitement, the solidarity, the suffering and the humour.
The tragedy is that, afterhard-won successes, the revolution has stalled and equality for women is stilla distant dream. Today men are paid more and occupy nearly 80% of the mostpowerful jobs across society. The Stalled Revolution poses a vitalquestion about the future: Are women ready to draw inspiration from pastsuccesses and take a third leap forward towards equality?
Thebook’s three-part approach traces clear pathways through historical successesand disappointments, teaching a newgeneration of campaigners how to confront the many challenges that face womenin the modern world. The StalledRevolution showcases how the wisdom from our collective struggles can helpform the bedrock of a new and successful liberation campaign today.
