Highlighting the contributions of feminist media history to media studies and related disciplines, this book focuses on feminist periodicals emerging from or reacting to the Edwardian suffrage campaign and situates them in the context of current debates about the public sphere, social movements, and media history.

'In its consideration of a selection of periodicals relating to the women's suffrage campaign during the Edwardian age , such as Votes for Women , The Common Cause and The Freewoman , this book offers a wonderful reminder of the range and complexity of ideas circulating in the early feminist press . The chapter on the much-neglected journal The Englishwoman is particularly welcome." - Jane Purvis, THE

'The authors' varied disciplinary perspectives make this book engaging reading but do not interfere with the book's focus. This brief examination will serve as a catalyst for additional research on the suffrage movement.' - R. Ray, Mississippi State University
