Waterstones Says

Inspiring, witty and thought-provoking, this is the full text of Jeanette Winterston’s acclaimed Richard Dimbleby Lecture exploring women’s rights a century on from the Suffragette movement.

Courage Calls to Courage Everywhere is a timely and inspiring call to arms by one of Britain's most acclaimed and important writers.

Whilst recognising how far women have come in the hundred years since getting the vote, Jeanette Winterson also insists that we must all do much more if we are to achieve true gender equality. Examining recent women's rights movements, the worlds of politics, technology and social media and changes in the law, Winterson calls out all the ways in which women still face discrimination and disadvantage.

Like the women who won the right to vote, we need to shout up, reach out, be courageous and finish the job. Also included in this volume is Emmeline Pankhurst's landmark Suffragette speech, 'Freedom or Death', which she delivered in 1913.

“A small but powerful, inspiring book”

This is truly a small but powerful book. Winterson has always been an unusually honest writer, especially about her own life and experiences, and here she examines the truth of women’s lives in the twentieth century.... More
