From the cover: “January 1989 marks the Diamond Jubilee of the founding of the first Townswomen’s Guild in the UK, and with it the first steps towards the establishment of a nationwide women’s organisation whose voice has remained powerful through six decades.

Growing from the Suffragist movement, the National Union of Townswomen’s Guilds has continued to fight for better educational, professional and creative opportunities for women, surviving times of political upheaval and social change and maintaining a loyal and enthusiastic membership.

The Diamond Jubilee marks a pinnacle of achievement for NUTG, and After the Vote has been written as a celebration of the first sixty years. The story of the movement’s development is illustrated with archive photographs and anecdotes which will stir memories among long-standing TG members and will serve to remind newer Townswomen of the achievements of their pioneering predecessors.”
