British Women Artists: From suffrage to the sixties by Carolyn Trant.

In the decades after women won the vote in Britain, their fortunes were shaped by war, continued oppressions and spirited resistance. Some succeeded in forging creative careers, such as Barbara Hepworth, Laura Knight and Winifred Nicholson; others were thwarted by the odds stacked against them. Weaving devasting individual stories with playful critique, artist Carolyn Trant reveals this hidden history set against an era of radical activism and great societal change.
