Things A Bright Girl Can Do

“Things A Bright Girl Can Do” is an interesting book about women’s suffrage during WWI. It tells the story of three young women, from three very different backgrounds fighting for the vote and gender equality. The stories of the three girls are intricately pieced together by Nicholls, and key historical events are presented from a different perspective. However, I feel that the relationship between May and Nell did not add much to the story and was a somewhat unnecessary addition to the storyline of the book. I also felt that as the book progressed, Evelyn’s story and campaigning took a bit of a backseat and wasn’t fully explored in a way that might have engaged the reader more. Overall, I thought that the book was an extremely thought-provoking read and was quite informative about the “Votes for Women” suffrage that took place in the early 1900s.
