Only a small society in a remote group of islands - but Shetland had women on its school boards as early as London or Edinburgh, and its first suffrage societies in 1873. Taylor traces how life changed for women through determined campaigning for equality within marriage, a University education, fair pay and working conditions, and greater involvement in the running of state institutions. The 1909 Shetland Women’s Suffrage Society had links with both peaceful and militant societies, and when war came Shetland women were more than ready to do their bit. This book becomes a history of women’s suffrage throughout Britain, as Taylor shows how local events and personalities were involved with the national movement. A wealth of pictures, letters and newsclippings bring Victorian/Edwardian Shetland and its suffrage women to life.
