Alice in Westminster: The Political Life of Alice Bacon by Rachel Reeves (signed)

£20.00

Author: Rachel Reeves

This inspiring book has been signed by the author, Rachel Reeves MP.

Alice Bacon was an unsung hero of twentieth century Britain – a working class lass who grew up in the coalfields and ended up in the House of Commons, where she was a lynchpin in serious social reforms around education, abortion and homosexuality. This biography is written by Rachel Reeves, MP for Leeds West. When Rachel was elected, only one woman had been elected as a Leeds MP before. That woman was Alice Bacon. Thus began a fascination that has turned into a book about a Labour Party trailblazer who, as a woman, would never even have been selected had the party ever thought she might win.
