Summary
The illustrated story of the past 100 years of the women's movement, from suffrage, alleged bra burning and the politics of hair to Beyonce, body positivity and #MeToo. Badly Behaved Women is the illustrated story of the past 100 years of the women's movement, from suffrage to alleged bra burning, the politics of hair, Beyonce, and body positivity, to an examination of the flaws and failures of the movement. Anna-Marie Crowhurst's authoritative, compelling and entertaining retelling of this multi-stranded, global and ongoing story is illustrated with stunning photographs and rare documents and archive material from sources around the world. Personal testimony essays from well-known contemporary figures bring the story right up to the present day. In the early twentieth century, through ceaseless dedication and fearless campaigning, the women's movement achieved what had previously been unimaginable: a woman's right to vote. 100 years and four waves of feminism on, the rich cultural history of this movement is truly worthy of celebration.
