The suffragettes outraged Victorian society but their personal lives were just as dramatic as their public actions. In this gripping and incisive account of the Pankhursts, Martin Pugh reveals the full story behind this unique family: Emmeline, the domineering mother; Christabel, the favourite daughter, who became an Adventist and admirer of Mussolini; Sylvia, the 'scarlet woman'; adn Adela, banished to Australia after a bitter rift. The result is a narrative that reads like a novel, and a brilliant insight into the history of a family that changed the face of British society for ever.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A marvellously gripping narrative with twists and turns of shock and poignancy that are worthy of a three-decker Victorian novel...exposes the full extent of the dysfunctional family that lay just beneath the surface of the Pankhursts' public image" * Independent on Sunday *
"Takes all the previous works on its subject and nudges them off the shelf" * Irish Times *
"A family saga like no other, superbly researched and profoundly stirring" * Sunday Times *
"Move over, Mitfords, The Pankhursts demand centre stage, as women who emerged from Edwardian drapery to break the rules of British society" * Literary Review *
