Summary

'Behind every great woman is a man who tried to stop her.'

A century on from the first votes for women in the UK, award-winning author Jeanette Winterson asks what we still stand to learn from the Suffragettes. Examining recent women's rights movements, the worlds of politics and technology, social media and changes in the law, Winterson celebrates how far we have come but demands that we do more. There is still so far to go, so much courage we still need to find.   

Witty and wise, incisive and inspiring, Courage Calls to Courage Everywhere is a powerful reminder of the need for true equality and an urgent call to arms.

Essential reading

Just as above. Essential for all.

Jeanette Winterson is The Writer of our time, in my opinion. To have her read to us too, is a stroke of genius.
