Mothers of Liberty: Women who built British Liberalism

Even before they gained the right to vote and to stand for election, women played many key roles in the development of British Liberalism as writers and thinkers, campaigners, political hostesses, organisers and, finally, as parliamentary candidates, MPs and peers. This History Group booklet contains the stories of the women who shaped British Liberalism – including Mary Wollstonecraft, Harriet Taylor Mill, the suffragist leader Millicent Garrett Fawcett, the first woman Liberal MP Margaret Wintringham, Violet Bonham Carter, Megan Lloyd George, Nancy Seear, Shirley Williams and many more. Full price £6; available to Journal of Liberal History subscribers at the special price of £5.
