This history of the Women’s Institute in England and Wales begins with the foundation of the first branches in 1915, when, having won the right to vote, ex-Suffragists sought to give women new confidence and better education. Curtis describes the WI’s growth into a significant women’s movement and shows how it has continued to evolve since the worldwide success of the film Calendar Girls helped it shed the ‘jam and Jerusalem’ image. (Previously sold in Postscript as The WI: A Centenary History).
