March, Women, March explores the women's movement in Britain, from the passing of the Marriage and Divorce Act in 1857 to women attaining the vote in 1928. Published to commemorate the centenary of the death of the suffragette Emily Wilding Davison, who threw herself under King George V's horse during the Derby and consequently sustained fatal injuries. This fascinating book uses anecdotes and accounts by both famous and hitherto lesser known suffragettes and suffragists to explore how the voice of women came to be heard throughout the land in the pursuit of equal votes for females. Using diary extracts and letters, the main protagonists of the women's movement are brought back to life as Lucinda Dickens Hawksley explores how they were portrayed in literature and art, as well as the media reports of the day.

On January 21, 2017, five million people in 82 countries and on all seven continents stood up with one voice. The Women’s March began with one cause, women’s rights, but quickly became a movement around the many issues that were hotly debated during the 2016 U.S. presidential race—immigration, health care, environmental protections, LGBTQ rights, racial justice, freedom of religion, and workers’ rights, among others. In the mere 66 days between the election and inauguration of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States, 673 sister marches sprang up across the country and the world. ABRAMS Image presents Why I March to honor the movement, give back to it, and promote future activism in the same vein. All royalties from the sale of the book will be donated to nonprofit organizations affiliated with the March.

“An archetypal lesbian pulp fiction novel of the '50s, dynamic and compelling, a top pick classic.” —Katherine Forrest, author, Lesbian Pulp Fiction Unconventional, even immoral, behavior certainly is not rare in Manhattan art circles. But what was going on in the menage of the Byrne woman raised eyebrows even of the most broadminded... “Someday,” Paula said, “perhaps we can live together and share this every night.” “Like a married couple?” Byrne laughed. “See me off to work? Have supper ready when I come home?” “You're teasing me.” “Not at all. I hadn't realized just how conventional you really are.” She rolled Paula to one side of the bed and nipped her earlobe playfully. “It's not convention.” “Maybe not. What would you call it?” “Love.” “I thought you hated the way your folks lived. Isn't that what you told me?” “It isn't like that,” Paula said with distaste. “First of all, you're not poor.”

I tried to photograph as many signs and people as I could. This collection of photographs is a sampling from the day.This is from Wikipedia."The Women's March was a worldwide anti-Donald Trump protest on January 21, 2017, to protest legislation and policies regarding human rights and other issues, including women's rights, immigration reform, healthcare reform, the natural environment, LGBQT rights, racial equality, freedom of religion, and workers' rights. The rallies were aimed at Trump, immediately following his inauguration as President of the United States, largely due to statements and positions attributed to him regarded by many as anti-woman or otherwise offensive. It was the largest single-day demonstration in U.S. history.The Washington March drew at least 500,000 people, and worldwide participation has been estimated to be 5 million people. Officials reported that 673 marches took place worldwide, on all seven continents, including 29 in Canada, 20 in Mexico, and one in Antarctica. In Washington D.C. alone, the protests were the largest political demonstrations since the anti-war protests against Vietnam in the 1960s and 1970s, with both protests drawing in similar numbers. The Women's March crowds were peaceful, and no arrests were made in Washington, D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, and Seattle, where an estimated combined total of 2 million people marched."

The March of the Women

A Revisionist Analysis of the Campaign for Women's Suffrage, 1866-1914

This book is the first comprehensive analysis of the campaign for women's suffrage to appear for over thirty years. It challenges the conventional chronology of the subject by arguing that the Victorian suffragists did not undergo a decline during the 1890s but, on the contrary, hadeffectively won the argument about votes for women by 1900. This view is supported by evidence of the ineffectiveness of Anti-Suffragism, and especially the difficulties it encountered in trying to reconcile female Antis, who were often feminists, with male Antis, who opposed all forms ofemancipation. The author adds a new dimension to the argument by discussing the beneficial impact on the British campaign of women's enfranchisement in New Zealand in 1893, and in Australia in 1902; and he shows how crucial to the shift towards suffragist support in parliament were Conservativemoves in favour of suffragism in the 1890s. The March of the Women also offers a fresh evaluation of the Edwardian militant campaign. At grass roots level divisions over tactics mattered less than among the London leadership, and suffragette groups were less rigidly divided. It places the Pankhursts and the WSPU in a fresh light byexamining their success in raising funds and in tapping the support of the British Establishment, at the same time attacking it and its values; while at the other end of the spectrum non-militants were making an important contribution to the cause by capitalising on working-class and Labour supportfor women's suffrage.
