The Women’s History of the Modern World


By Rosalind Miles
The history of women activists, activists who pioneered everything that means women’s rights, from the French Revolution to the present, from the Enlightenment to the #MeToo movement. The important moments from the birth of the modern feminist movement and the rise of women in the social, economic and political fields are recorded. A gallery of amazing women, from heads of state such as Empress Cixi, Eugenia Charles, Indira Gandhi, Jacinda Ardern, to Winnie Mandela, Marie Curie and Ada Lovelace, writers Mary Wollstonecraft, Simone de Beauvoir, Elaine Morgan and Germaine Greer. Women in politics, in art, in sports, in business, in religion – all are proof of the extraordinary progress that women have made in the modern age.
