|Tags:||fiction, human rights, Suffragette Movement|
The book gives, perhaps, the most vivid and coherent account in literature of the Suffragette Movement in England, written with an insight and sympathy that render the story luminous and powerful. It is a great book, but is neither nice, pretty, dainty or conventional. It is a book for real men and women who wish to meet the problems of life in a real fashion.—Out West, October, 1913.
This is a novel of the evolution of woman and a novel of and for woman’s suffrage. Julia France was married off by her parents to an heir to a British dukedom and finds herself tied to a loathsome degenerate from whom British law allows no possibility of divorce. Julia awakes to the reality and revolts against injustice and poverty. She joins the “Militant Movement”. She urges suffrage from the street corners, marches on Parliament, is assaulted, arrested and jailed. Every page of the story is a logical plea for a revaluation of women.—The New York Times, April 21, 1912. [Suggest a different description.]
Author Bio for Atherton, Gertrude Franklin Horn
Gertrude Franklin Horn Atherton (October 30, 1857 – June 14, 1948) was a prominent and prolific American author. Many of her novels are set in her home state, California. Her best-seller Black Oxen (1923) was made into a silent movie of the same name. In addition to novels, she wrote short stories, essays, and articles for magazines and newspapers on such issues as feminism, politics, and war. She was strong-willed, independent-minded, and sometimes controversial.--Wikipedia.
