Imagine a world where girls and boys have equal and fair opportunities. Where women have full equality with men. A world where belonging on any part of the gender spectrum does not limit or enhance your life chances. There is not a single country in the world where women have full gender parity with men. Let that sink in. The title of the first country to achieve equality has still to be won. This book explores one of the key reasons why women are still held back and what we can do to empower each other. Women of the world: it’s time for us to stand together. Men have been the privileged sex for far too long. Let’s make gender equality our reality. In this book the author shares fresh new research from the world's leading countries on gender equality. It provides easily digestible tips as part of an everyday activist's toolkit at the end of each chapter. Whatever your current thoughts are on feminism, this book is guaranteed to make you think even harder about the topic.

Secrets of the Suffragettes: An Exploration of Exclusion in the British Suffragette Movement
The Suffragettes have long been revered in British history, for their contribution to the women’s rights movement, and the sacrifices that they made in order to secure the right for women to vote in public elections. Despite their undeniable and positive influence on the political landscape, the history of the Suffragettes is one that is centred around the actions and voices of white, mainly middle-class women; reflecting a suffrage movement that excluded many of their contemporaries. In this book, the pro-colonial, conservative opinions of Emmeline Pankhurst, the founder of the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU) have been examined, alongside the contrasting views of her daughter, Sylvia Pankhurst. The focus is then shifted onto the only woman of colour who is noted as playing a significant role within the women’s suffrage movement: Princess Sophia Duleep Singh. This book is for anyone who believes that true equality is always intersectional.
