Sarah Ridley
Authors:
Sarah Ridley

This book tells the story of the campaign to get women the vote in Britain through 14 significant objects. From photos of key people in the campaign through ephemera such as force-feeding equipment, banners and medallions Sarah Ridley brings the story to life. Beginning by looking at the role of women in the 19th Century and ending with the continuing struggle for equal rights for women in all parts of society, this is an essential read for young people aged 10 plus to understand the history of the women's movement on suffrage.2018 was a landmark year that marked 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). The Houses of Parliament celebrated this centenary with their 'Vote 100' project. 2018 was also be the 90th anniversary of women gaining full voting equality with men in 1928.

Together they set out to solve the magical murder of one of Tarreton's most influential citizens and save Isaveth's beloved papa from execution. But as the list of suspects grows, finding the culprit becomes more of a challenge than the two young detectives anticipated. As her father's sentencing looms closer, Isaveth depends more and more on Quiz to help her solve the mystery. But when she discovers that the boy she trusted as an equal is far more privileged than he seems, it casts his motives into doubt and puts their whole partnership in jeopardy. And then Isaveth realises that Urias Breck was deliberately framed, and that the real murderer is protected by the powerful Lord Mayor of Tarreton himself. Can she ever prove her papa's innocence in time...?
