Book descriptionEdit

"18th June, 1910
We marched from the Embankment to the Albert Hall. It was a glorius day. The sun shone warmly. Everyone was in good spirits. There were aristocrats, artists, even my mother looked happy. She who has been so opposed to my work with the WSPU. More than 10,000 people had rallied and there were dozens of bands playing. It was quite incredible. We waved banners, carried flowers, sang along with the tunes. Hundreds who have been imprisoned for our Cause marched together in a powerful band. It was all very rousing of spirit. I felt proud to be a woman, proud to be alive, proud to be a part of a movement that is fighting to make a difference.

"It's 1909. Dollie is swept up in the thrill of the campaign for Votes for Women. Against her guardian's wishes, she marches against Parliament with Emmeline Pankhurst and her fellow suffragettes. But as the movement turns violent, women are imprisoned and endanger their lives with hunger strikes. Dollie must decide how far she will go for 'Deeds, not words'..."

"It is no future if I grow up in a world where women are not recognized as citizens."
It's 1909, and Dollie is swept up in the thrill of the suffragettes' campaign: Votes for Women! Despite being forbidden to go, Dollie marches on Parliament along with the famous Emmeline Pankhurst and her fellow protestors. It's a thrilling time, but when the protests turn violent, will Dollie have the courage to stand up for what she believes in? How far will she go?
