This is the compelling story of seven rebel girls, whose Edwardian lives were transformed - forever- by the Votes for Women campaign. It is a tale so far untold - for their stories were erased from the standard suffrage histories. Now, at last, newly discovered evidence has surfaced. Rebel Girls is based upon new archival sources along with a critical reading of the contemporary press and of forgotten autobiographies; this documentary evidence is complemented by interviews - recorded in Australia with Adela Pankhurst's granddaughter, in the U.S. with Mary Gawthorpe's great-niece, and in the U.K. with the descendents of the other forgotten suffragettes. The key missing piece of the suffrage jigsaw can finally be slipped into place - and the full history of the 'rebel girls' be made available at last.
