Abstract

In Red Ellen: The Life of Ellen Wilkinson, Socialist, Feminist, Internationalist, Laura Beers presents a dynamic account of the life of Ellen Wilkinson, a working-class girl from Manchester turned humanitarian, campaigner and politician. Beers’s book offers an insight into Wilkinson’s sometimes controversial life and a period of British history when young people from all walks of life were driven by the desire to enact social change, both at home and abroad. Katherine Williams recommends this book to those interested in the history of the radical left in the UK, social history and, of course, Ellen Wilkinson herself.
