Indeed, Winston Churchill, as Home Secretary enemy No. 1 of said suffragettes, wrote in his 1911 diary: "Everything these days seems to be changing."
Threshold Girl paints a 360 degree picture of this pivotal 1910 era, but in Canada.
The book is based on real family letters, a full 300 of them, and embellished with excerpts from the historical record.
As such, Threshold Girl is an ideal social studies resource for high schools.
