    Between the 1850s and the 1930s, a group of female journalists established a new type of political newspaper written 'by and for women'. Drawing on printed texts, business records and personal letters, this ground-breaking study charts the rise of publications such as the Women's Penny Paper and Votes for Women. It profiles the remarkable characters who created them, the new employment opportunities they offered, and their enduring effect on the social fabric of Britain.
