Summary

On the 100th anniversary of women getting the vote, Helen Pankhurst - great-granddaughter of suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst and a leading women's rights campaigner - charts how women's lives have changed over the last century and offers a powerful and positive argument for a new way forward.

Why is it taking so long? Despite huge progress since the original suffragette campaigns and wave after wave of new feminism, women are still not equal. On the centenary of one of the greatest steps forward for women - the vote - Suffragette descendent and campaigner Helen Pankhurst takes the listener on a journey exploring how women's lives have changed over the last 100 years and how we can take things even further.

Combining historical insight with inspiring argument, Deeds not Words is essential listening for anyone who wants to know more about how far women have come since the Suffragettes, how far we still have to go and how we will get there.

thought provoking and detailed

good engaging read. the content is detailed and provides a background to challenge some of the more established myths about feminism.
however the later chapters do contain what appear to be quite long lists of names and individuals in both the culture and their aspirations which possibly doesn't work as well when being read to you in audible book,

faciniated by the facts and views of the author

this book gave me an extensive lookout on the feminism development in the last 100 years in one of the most important evolving places for feminism. an intelligent and very thorough resserch with many fact and figures supporting the arguments but also a stand and view givving voice to many women. if you are interested in the subject this is a must read.
