GENERATION W (Home Delivered Book)
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 that continued to fight for justice and live without restriction.
GENERATION W is a collection of original and uncensored interviews with 100 leading 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.
