Join two best friends as history is made in 1913. Eleven-year-old Christine has been taught that a girl’s place is at home looking after her family and putting up with BEASTLY BIG BROTHERS. Mary has been taught that a girl’s place is learning how to CHANGE THE WORLD. After meeting outside the suffragette headquarters, the girls become fast friends, writing as often as they can. Their letters fly back and forth across London, as the VOTES FOR WOMEN campaign threatens to bring the nation to its knees – buildings BURNING, windows SMASHING, postboxes EXPLODING. Will their friendship survive? Celebrating one hundred years since women first gained the right to vote, My Best Friend the Suffragette is an exciting read for children aged 6+, packed with fascinating historical details.
