Product information

The RSPB's long history started with a small group of formidable Victorian women fighting to stop the use of feathers in fashion. One of these women, Etta Lemon, is heralded in this gripping tale. Interwoven with the history of the suffragette movement, this is a fascinating reflection on the power of campaigning and a reminder that even those seemingly without a voice, can make a massive difference.

Published to coincide with the centenary of the Plumage (Prohibition) Act of 1921. Previously published in hardback as Mrs. Pankhurst's purple feather.

‘Quite brilliant. Meticulous and perceptive. A triumph of a book.’ - Charlie Elder

‘Shocking and entertaining. The surprising story of the campaigning women who changed Britain.’ - Virginia Nicholson
