This densely informative book for older children is published ahead of 2018 – a year that marks the centenary of the Representation of the People Act. This finally gave the vote to some women for the first time (women over 30, who owned property) and also gave the vote to all men (up until then, only about two-thirds of men had the vote).

2018 will also be the 90th anniversary of women gaining full voting equality with men in 1928.
