In the midst of today’s highly politicised debates on gender equality, one thing is clear: the fight for women’s rights is unfinished business. This book, which accompanies a bold and forward-facing British Library exhibition, presents the history of women’s rights in sixteen diverse and timely essays. Among the topics explored are biology, including the first female anatomical skeleton; women’s right to sexual pleasure; women’s Suffrage; the fight for equal education and employment through the Women’s Liberation movement; and how this rich history works today as an engine to power future change.

From personal diaries, banners and protest fashion to subversive literature, film, music and art, no topic is too taboo: Unfinished Business presents how women and their allies have fought for equality with passion, imagination, humour and tenacity.
