This book explains civil rights and the the history of the fight for equal rights for women in an accessible way for younger readers.
Movements in the struggle for women’s rights through history are explored chronologically. A selection of key civil rights moments and movements are broken down into short blocks of text that examine some of the history of why women have universally been denied the same rights as men. It looks at topics, such as suffrage movements in various countries around the world, how women are denied rights to work and education, violence against women and women in sport. It explores how women have fought to be able to live their lives freely and that this fight is still ongoing. It also acknowledges the racial inequality in voting rights and how Black, indigenous and women of colour throughout the world have had a further struggle for their civil rights.
Prominent civil rights campaigners and figures are featured and a timeline helps readers to see at a glance how the fight to bring about equality has evolved over time and is still ongoing. Sensitive illustrations illuminate the text and help readers to understand some of the trickier concepts. Death and violence are mentioned, but are wholly in context and are written about in a non-alarmist way with the age of the reader very much in mind.
This book includes a foreword by Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu, who is a prominent lawyer, political and women’s rights activist and author of This Is Why I Resist.
