Going for the Second Chances

Book Review of “Old Baggage” by Lissa Evans.

It is 1928, and Matilda (aka Mattie) Simpkin is living with her old friend from her Women's Suffrage Campaign days, Florrie Lee (lovingly known as “The Flea”), and still giving lectures on the suffragette movement, and why it is still important. Yes, it has been 10 years since some women were given the vote, and soon all women will receive this right; but it still feels like their work with the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU) is not yet done. When an old friend shows up after a long stay in Australia, spouting that the WSPU is dead, and the real future belongs to – believe it or not – fascism, Mattie realizes that the only way to keep up what she started back before the Great War, is to get them while they’re young, and of course, to start with girls!
