The history of feminism told through its most prominent advocates, including a diverse range of international names and faces.

The Periodic Table of Feminism is an empowering, engaging and informed look at the feminist movement through the international figures who have shaped it, from Mary Wollstonecraft to Caitlin Moran by way of Simone de Beauvoir and Oprah. Featuring 130 figures as well as 10 additional `top ten' lists, the book will offer new angles on famous faces as well as introduce you to some unsung heroes.

While the narrative takes the reader through feminisms struggle from the first wave to the fourth, the table offers a key to understanding how these women and the battles they fought speak to each other across time and continents: if you're inspired by Sheryl Sandberg, prepared to be equally wowed by Frances Harper and Alison Bechdel.

With unique illustrations and pull-out quotes peppered throughout, this is an essential guide to Feminism and a place to turn to for courage and inspiration from history's heroic women.
