The Very Salt of Life: Welsh Women’s Political Writings from Chartism to Suffrage

  

Editor: Jane Aaron, Ursula Masson

£8.99     BUY THIS BOOK

This innovative and ground-breaking anthology covers a century of Welsh women's political writings, from the 1830s to the 1930s; its diverse contributors include female Chartists, patriotic defenders of Wales and its language, feminists working for women's equality within religious and educational institutions, temperance campaigners, Liberal Party supporters, early socialists, and 'votes for women' activists.

Incorporating material in Welsh (with translations) as well as English, its wide range of sources include political party archives, unpublished manuscripts, and contributions by women to Welsh-American as well as British periodicals.

"This anthology makes available valuable documents about women's aspirations, grievances, toils and triumphs which would not otherwise be easily accessible."
Angela V. John, University of Aberystwyth
