Shop Highlights

Front cover of 'First in the Fight' book

First in the Fight book


Written by Helen Antrobus and Andrew Simcock, and with 20 individual Women in Print illustrations, First in the Fight tells of a city where, from the women who marched to St Peter’s Field flying the flag for reform to the first entrepreneurs, women have stood shoulder to shoulder in the fight for equality and change.

Creatively inspiring both the title and the design of the book’s front cover (by Jane Bowyer) is the Manchester suffragette banner, part of People’s History Museum’s collection. First in the Fight is published by Manchester’s iNostalgia.

We now have a limited number of signed copies in stock.
