Suzanne Voilquin: Socialist Feminist
By Linda Kelly Alkana, Lorna Alkana and Alex Alkana
Growing out of Linda Kelly Alkana’s PhD research, this illustrated biography of Suzanne Voilquin provides fascinating glimpses into the life of a woman striving for equality and justice in the 19th century, charting a journey that took her to Egypt, America and around the world.
Suzanne Voilquin’s story of dedication to these goals should inspire all who pursue social justice and equality.
