Women of the World: The Rise Of The Female Diplomat
Bargain Book Copy
British women were unable to represent their nation abroad until 1946, but were fully present in the masculine worlds of international politics and diplomacy. As wives, travellers, writers and experts, they forced their way into these forbidden realms, heroically defending their country, while daring to challenge their oppressors and claim personal and professional equality.
Helen McCarthy unearths letters ,memoirs and government records, and personally interviews these international heroines, mapping the radical transformation of the past 150 years and vividly enriching our understanding of women's role in Britain's global history.
