REVIEWS

Forbidden Planet

•Comics retailer

“An absolutely fascinating and compelling look at a very important piece of recent history … a beautifully constructed tale – unsurprisingly well-researched given Mary’s academic background … [but also] a beautifully done human tale. If you’re not emotionally invested in Sally by the end of it then there’s something wrong with you.”

The Express

•UK newspaper

“Rich in historical detail … A powerful reminder of the sacrifices women made over a century ago to win the right to vote.”

The Guardian

•UK national newspaper

“Combines an academic attention to detail with passionate politics … There's a potent mix of hope and brutality here, hammering home the radicalism of those who fought for the vote and the self-satisfied power of those who resisted … a very readable crusade.”
