About Generation W:
In 1918, Women in the UK received the vote for the first time, a landmark moment in equality, and democracy. For the first time in society, women were no longer restricted by law, and what came next was a century of pioneers, legends and champions.
Generation W is a collection of original and unseen interviews with 100 iconic and inspiring British women who lived through 100 years on from the vote passing, all answering the same ten questions explaining what drives them, how they overcame struggle and what they want the next generation to take from ours.
Included in Generation W, a brand new, close to 500 page anthology hardcover book are words from women of all ages, ranging from those who were born in the 1930’s to trailblazers as young as 6 years old, varying across a host of different experiences including:
