Our speaker on 16 March, Dr Alexandra Hughes-Johnson, was beset by Zoom gremlins, and her stimulating presentation was subject to many stops and starts.  Her talk,   “Keep Your Eyes On Us Because There Is No More Napping”: The Wartime Suffrage Campaigns of the Suffragettes of the WSPU and the Independent WSPU’ was based on her chapter of this title in The Politics of Women’s Suffrage: Local, National and International Perspectives (London: University of London Press, 2021), of which she is co-editor with Lyndsey Jenkins. The publication is open-access and Alex’s chapter can be accessed on the PDF link here: The Politics of Women’s Suffrage: Local, National and International Dimensions | Humanities Digital Library (

Princeton University Press has recently published Career and Family: Women’s Century-Long Journey toward Equity by Claudia Goldin.

A century ago, it was a given that a woman with a college degree had to choose between having a career and a family. Today, there are more female university graduates than ever before, and more women want to have a career and family, yet challenges persist at work and at home. In Career and Family, Claudia Goldin traces how generations of women have responded to this problem, and explains why we must make fundamental changes to the way we work and how we value caregiving if we are ever to achieve gender equality and couple equity.
