Women have come a long way since 1796, and this is the story of that journey. Anne McGarry has delved deep into many archives, corresponded and met with people in many parts of the world to bring us this very human story of the girls of Fairfield High School in Droylsden, near Manchester. Although the historical and social background of women is explored by discussing contemporary literature and political reform, it is mainly through the lives of girls who went to one of England's oldest girls' schools (now a comprehensive) that readers experience what it was really like to be a woman during this turbulent period of female emancipation.
