About the Author

Angela V. John is Honorary Professor of History at Aberystwyth University


This is a fascinating account of a forgotten feminist. Evelyn Sharp was an 1890s 'new woman' who became a militant suffragette before 1914 and became renowned both as a journalist and children's writer. Angela V. John's lucid and scholarly biography brings her back into view, illuminating the social and political history of her era while skilfully weaving into the story Sharp's long, secret love affair with the Guardian journalist she eventually married - Henry Nevinson. Professor Shelia Rowbotham
