    http://cronicasenferrocarril.blogspot...Me ha gustado muchísimo esta novela gráfica, por lo que se aprende con ella y sobretodo por ese regusto amargo que se le queda a uno con la última viñeta, que nos lleva una vez más a reflexionar.

    Me ha resultado bastante difícil puntuar esta novela gráfica pero creo que se merece esas cuatro estrellas por dos cosas: 1) las viñetas me han encantado, están llenas de detalles y son necesarias muchas relecturas para apreciar todo el trabajo que hay detrás; 2) nos acerca a la lucha sufragista y creo que es necesario recordarlo. Parece mentira que, aunque haya pasado un siglo, sigamos haciendo chistes con lo de: "las mujeres tienen que quedarse en casa cuidando de los hijos y siendo amas de casa que es para lo que sirven" y que, haber nacido en una época donde las mujeres tenemos derecho a votar nos haya hecho olvidar que no fue fácil ni una lucha gratuita. Fin del discurso feminista.Un libro para disfrutar y reflexionar.

    Sally Heathcote: Suffragette is an engaging and thoroughly researched comics volume on an important aspect of both British and American (and in principle, the world, of course) history: the Edwardian Suffragette movement for the purpose of equal rights, voting, representation, and dignity. The focus is on the British story. And the history is (for me) surprisingly violent, and angry. What was I expecting? Relatively polite and articulate British women at the turn of the twentieth century! But these are not all pacifist ML King activists, though most were. A split happened among them, just as happened in the U.S. during the Civil Rights era along similar lines: Dr. King advocated Gandhian nonviolence, Malcom X said "any means necessary," though it was also most non-violent. Sally is a fictional character, a working class maid, set among several actual historical figures I couldn't quite keep track of, maybe in part because I am American and didn't know all the names. The issues are familiar, though, and the action is often fast and furious, and you do get good exposure to the range of historical moments. And it is, as I said, pretty engaging. Sally is imprisoned for breaking a cop's nose with her forehead when he was grabbing her inappropriately as the police broke up a demonstration. She was jailed for eight months for this (!) and when she tried, according to plan, to go on a hunger strike, she was force-fed, and violently. In the process of telling the story, we read a lot of outrageous sexist and even misogynist things said by the male political establishment and all kinds of men of the time. But Sally also has a good guy friend, Paul, and Talbot uses him to humanize the political tale, though she also makes him into a bit of a cliche at the same time (the one good man!).And like most ambitious graphic histories, she tries to do maybe a bit too much, to be expansive, and in the process thins out events to cover as much as possible. There is a timeline included and lots and lots of notes suggested texts in an appendix. It's a good place to start on the subject, for sure. Given that I had no particular interest in the British suffragette movement, I thought they did a pretty good job reeling me in. . .I am not a particular fan of Bryan Talbot's art work. I liked their previous collaborative project, Dotter of Her father's Eyes. The cover is not so inviting, and I thought this was unfortunately titled, like it was an after-school special, though maybe that is the intended audience, YA Brit kids.

    This was awesome! I liked it more than Talbot's first graphic novel just because it was bigger and I felt like there was room for more story. The panelling was done better too and it was easy to follow. Sally was such a good character, and though I was aware of the actions and hardships of the suffragettes, this story really gave it a background.

    I read it so slowly because it never got to engage me but I went on because I was interested in the suffragette movement.The story itself follows the perspective of the fictional Sally Heathcote, a young woman picked out by Emmeline Pankhurst from a workhouse in Manchester to become a housemaid in her home. By working there Sally's eavesdrops the early stages of development for the Women's Social and Political Union to eventually becoming an active member involved in militant and radical activities. Through her activism you can get a clear picture of the social deprivation, levels of physical and sexual harassment and long hard labouring hours involved with domestic service. You witness the treatment of women's suffrage and day-to-day lives; the hunger strikes, the violence and attacks on peaceful marches, and the more extremist actions of the suffragettes themselves. Despite its coldness I'm thankful to the graphic novel for opening a window to see those women we should be so pride of because without them we would never have the right to choose or the possibility to let our voices be heard. Just because of that it is a worthy read

    No está mal, pero se me queda un poco corto. La historia está contada un poco a trompicones, dan por hecho mucha información que no estaría de más que se plasmase. La traducción es bastante chusquera. El dibujo sin embargo me ha encantado, y el hecho de resaltar detalles en colores cuando predomina el blanco y negro me ha parecido muy acertado.

    Sally Heathcote: Sugfragista es un comic lleno de historia, pasión y feminismo que está muy bien documentado, aunque no necesariamente muy bien contado. Me costó seguir la historia durante las primeras páginas, así que investigué por encima el movimiento sufragista británico de principios del siglo XX para empaparme mejor de lo que estaba leyendo (si alguien se anima a leerlo hay un jugoso apartado de cronología y anotaciones en las páginas finales que resulta muy útil y en el que yo tardé un tiempo en reparar). Fue un gran acierto, porque he disfrutado de la historia de Sally y he aprendido bastante sobre la lucha de las mujeres en Reino Unido.Por ponerle un pero, el que para mi tienen a menudo los cómics: me falta personaje. Sally es una excusa perfecta para acercarnos a la historia del movimiento, pero no ha logrado cautivarme.Eso sí, he terminado la lectura arribísima gracias a la penúltima viñeta del cómic, que no voy a detallar para ahorrar spoilers, pero que me ha sacudido y emocionado mucho.

    Bazen sahip olduğumuz hakların değerinin farkında olmadan, o hakları küçümsüyoruz ya... Hatta o haklarımızın gereksiz olduğunu veya aslında o haklara sahip olmamamız gerektiğini falan düşünenler var. Düşünme ve konuşma özgürlüğü, din seçme özgürlüğü, eğitim alma özgürlüğü, seçme ve seçilme özgürlüğü ve daha pek çok şey. Atatürk'ün bize bu hakları, biz mücadele etmeden vermesinin hata olup olmadığını düşündürttü bu kitap bana. Tatile gideceğim deyip oy kullanmayan yurtdaşlarım, neyin ne kadar farkında acaba... Kitap çok çok güzel. Herkese ama özellikle kadınlara öneririm, mutlaka okuyunuz okutturunuz.

    Reconozco que al principio me costó un poco, no sé si el problema eran los diálogos en sí o la traducción, pero me parecían pobres, planos... no lo sé. En cualquier caso, me acostumbré y lo que sí disfruté desde el principio, fue el tratamiento de color y la narrativa de las viñetas. Y, por supuesto, la historia; es una buena forma de conocer en detalle esta parte de la lucha, todos esos sacrificios que hicieron estas mujeres para que algunos hoy puedan permitirse el lujo de darlo todo por sentado y decir que el feminismo ya no es necesario.

    So... I wanted to like this book. I kind of had an assumption I would enjoy it. But despite the nice art and average writing, something just felt fundamentally off about this comic. So, since I'm trying to err on the side of less stars (rather then more) I've ended up giving it 2 stars. It was OK, but I don't think I will ever recommend it to anyone because at best I don't think many people would find this terribly interesting - which is a complete and total shame IMHO.Despite the fact that this was publish back in 2014 I obviously read it in a post Suffragette movie world and I must admit that all the stupid shit that that movie stirred up did have an affect on how I saw this comic. Do I have a perfect solution for what they could have done instead? No. There are a few different options, and certainly more when you consider that they character in this comic was completely fictional.That said, I do think that my feelings that this was the EASIEST story to tell are still justified. Overall it seemed so cookie-cutter really. Hitting all the points that most suffragette media does. I really haven't read that much about British suffragettes before but I still felt like I had read this story a million times before.They certainly did not win any points for making the main thrust of the comic be about a romance plot-line! It just felt so strangely cliche.The predominantly gray-tone watercolor was very nice though. I hadn't seen it before and I enjoyed the style of drawing as well. Probably my favorite part of this whole book.

    Dá unha versión máis completa e matizada que a da película Suffragette (2015) e encantoume a ilustración, mais o comic é algo difícil de seguir narrativamente. Polo demais, flipo co abuso do masculino xenérico na tradución castelá da obra. Ten que estar feita a mala fe, dado que trata case enteiramente de mulleres feministas e o tradutor sempre se refire a elas en masculino. Non ten sentido ningún.

    La composición gráfica junto con todos los anexos, que incluyen una completa cronología de la lucha del movimiento sufragista y las completas notas con las traducciones de todos los lemas, pancartas y panfletos, hacen de esta novela gráfica una verdadera maravilla.

    How did this book make the woman's suffrage movement of England boring? I mean, it's not a topic high on my interest list, but it was appealing enough for me to check out the book. But the first third of the story is confusing, starting (for a page) in 1961, before jumping to a mid-point in the story, throwing characters at the reader before then jumping further back to actually introduce the lead. And then the story just sort of rolls out - the stakes are never really built up, and the resolution of the central topic (women's suffrage) is provided not in the story itself, but only in the bloody footnotes.... The main character is fictional, but doesn't do enough action to justify her own creation.The art is interesting, black and white except for one or two traits to help identify the characters. Very cartoonish, but it serves the story well. Unfortunately, the story itself doesn't serve. The 1961 bookends are absolutely pointless, the story spends more time in conversation about the social meanderings of the major activists, and ultimately it makes what was a major social and political force of the early 20th century feel like nothing actually happened. Maybe I didn't connect with it the way other readers did, but ultimately this left me with a bad taste - A laudable subject for a graphic novel that just didn't click for me.

    Sally Heathcoate follows a Northern maid who is drawn into the Suffragette movement by her employer, and who comes into contact with all the major names of the movement at one point or another. It is a compelling telling of the historic facts surrounding the fight for female rights that took place during the early 20th century, and highlights the factions and rivalries that existed within the movement, in a way that isn't often seen. I would say that using the format of a Graphic Novel and a fictional character to tell this type of story is a stroke of genius and it should bring the historic facts home to a great number of people who would otherwise have been unaware of the facts of this period. The artwork flows nicely, and incorporates pieces of legislation, letters etc into the story to illustrate further details of the political and social situation faced by women at the time. The gradual transformation of Lloyd George into a cat was a great visual representation of the infamous 'Cat and Mouse' Act that saw Suffragettes returned to prison time and time again for example.I hope to see more titles along similar lines and genuinely think that this could be a useful resource for teaching the history of Women's rights.

    Novela gráfica en la que nos cuenta como se desarrolló el movimiento sufragista en la Inglaterra de principios de s. XX a través de Sally, su protagonista, empleada doméstica en la casa de una de las fundadoras del movimiento. Me ha parecido una buena novela gráfica para ir entendiendo el movimiento sufragista, los problemas que tuvieron, las armas que utilizaron para hacerse notar...En cuanto a al dibujo y los colores que emplea (la novela es en blanco y negro pero resaltando los colores del movimiento: verde, blanco y morado; y el color pelirrojo del pelo de la protagonista) me ha parecido muy acertado, un buen recurso gráfico.En general, me ha gustado la novela. Si queréis aproximaros a este tema, es una buena novela para empezar. Aunque no pretendáis encontrar una historia del sufragismo bien desarrollada, es una novela gráfica, para eso mejor leer una monografía o un libro más extenso sobre este tema.

    I do enjoy graphic novels now and again as a break or to read in snatched moments alongside normal books and I picked this one up as I was interested so see how the suffragette story would be told in visual imagery alongside text.I did enjoy it and when I had finished I felt I had learn't a lot about the movement in the twentieth century and the issues facing working class women and the vote but the story was very jumpy and too many characters came in and out. I think it also would of been that more interesting had the novel not been based on a fictional character. However, the last few pages delivered a powerful message and perfect ending. Three out of five stars from me.

    Such a great way to tell the story of the Suffragette. I had a bit of knowledge (mainly from the kids show horrible histories, which is awesome and will argue with anyone who says it's not!) about the Suffrage movement and wanted to read some historical texts to get to know it more, and this was perfect because it was unintimidating and relatable. And enjoyable too! 4 stars!

    Me he pensado mucho la nota de este libro pero al final no me he dejado "dominar" por el mensaje, sino por la forma de trasmitirle...si le trasmite. Empecemos por lo bueno: el dibujo, y esas viñetas finales. Fin. Lo malo: (view spoiler)[¿De verdad no es un arma de doble filo este libro? Gracias esas mujeres hoy millones de mujeres podemos votar pero mientras lo leía solo veía viñetas de señoras con ceños muy fruncidos, que tiran HACHAS y que hasta cuando juegan lo hacen a juegos de "política sufragista". Es decir, si empiezas una historia con una mujer tirando un hacha, y no la conoces, no sabes los hechos, ¡¡No la justificas!! Es decir, en esa época luchar por los derechos humanos debía de ser imposible y en lugar de decirnos que lo hicieron lo mejor que pudieron nos las presenta, a mi modo de ver, como una panda de locas que caen en la radicalidad de forma muy rara. El libro trata de contar muchas cosas en pocas viñetas, dando una sensación de precipitación y desconcierto. Y por dios, ¡¡No era necesario una historia de amor!!En fin, que me pareció una oportunidad desaprovechada para conocer y apreciar a estas mujeres a las que debemos tanto. (hide spoiler)]

    Ay, pues un tema genial, unos dibujos preciosos y un uso del color muy chuli, pero una historia muy mal contada. El guión está como a trozos, no hay una línea clara de personajes y acontecimientos; y al leer el cómic no podía dejar de estar confusa preguntándome "¿quién es ésta?¿quién esta otra? ¿ésto cuando fue?"... y jovar, da coraje. Porque esto hay que contarlo bonito y bien. Eso sí, lo que me ha gustado mucho ha sido la inclusión de la cartelería británica de la lucha, que soy muy romántica xD

    This book was very poignant, yet inspiring. Sally Heathcote and her comrades are amazing people and this book brings them to life. The book transports you straight into early 20th century Britain; its politics, ignorance, inequality, tradition and peculiarities.

    Никогда не приурочивала прочтение книг к каким-либо событиям, но так уж нечаянно получилось - библиотекари ставят некоторые книги "лицом к людям", считая, что надо к ним привлечь внимания, на меня это всегда действует.Итак, графическая новелла о некой Салли, которая в начале XX века боролась за право голоса для женщин. Естественно, героиня и её приключения выдуманные, но описываемые события вполне реальны.Конечно, сложившаяся в Британии ситуация была отвратительна: женщины к тому моменту работали наравне с мужчинами, но платили им за их труд меньше, а кроме того, у женщин не было права голоса. Непрямая цитата из книги, что дескать женщина естественным образом лишена права голоса, как и кролики естественным образом лишены права голоса. Странно, кролики вроде бы не работали на заводах.Итак, ситуация вызрела, женщины стали бороться за свои права. Звучит благородно. Что на самом деле - кучка организаций, каждая из которых не только по-своему борется за свои права против общего врага (правительства), но и борется с другими себе подобными организациями. Ну как обычно в женском коллективе, сказала бы я, но на мой взгляд, это скорее разногласия по политическим мотивам. Не очень поняла, в чём было различие между большинством организаций, но в центре книги их две: одна учреждает клуб для девочек, помогает женщинам с трудоустройством на справедливых условиях, устраивает демонстрации с транспарантами. Вторая организация - чисто террористическая. Они устраивают погромы, нападают на людей, ввязываются в драки и даже подкладывают бомбы. На мой взгляд, достаточно странный метод борьбы за свои права. Хотя, если подумать, метод теоретически впечатляющий: дескать, женщины наравне с мужчинами бывают сильными и могут доставлять кучу проблем.Сама книга достаточно сумбурна. Бесконечные демонстрации, манифестации, выступления и кидания камнями в окна. Правительство сначала полностью игнорирует как мирные, так и не мирные женские организации. Затем наступает Первая мировая, все мужики уходят на фронт, работу, даже самую неженскую, выполняют оставшиеся в тылу представительницы слабого пола, так что правительству уже естественным образом пришлось признать, что женщины мужчинам естественным образом ни в чём не уступают.Финальная страница самая фееричная. Престарелую Салли навещает внучка. Она говорит, что ей скоро восемнадцать и бабушка радуется, что она уже в следующем году может голосовать. На что внучка говорит, что её это вообще не интересует. Это, конечно, не говорит, что Салли боролась зазря, а говорит, что то, что даётся легко, меньше ценится. Ну или что какие люди бывают эгоисты, что им даже тяжело пересилить себя и порадовать старую бабушку.

    I heard of this through an event at Gosh comics. I am interested in the history of the suffragette movement but it's one of those parts of history I know very little about. As such I found this a really interesting telling about the movement. The author has a fictional character who knows the historical ones and looks at the development of the movement through her eyes. It does a very good job of outlining the beliefs and the struggles. The sheer amount of sexism these women had to fight against is mindboggling! It's as if women were subhuman. The book presents why the violence happened and the intentions behind it and why there was a split. One thing I thought didn't get much of an explanation which might confuse people was the references to the cat and mouse approach of the government but not detailing what that was. My only other regret was that it finished when it did, I would have liked to have seen the story continue through to women actually getting the vote and equal representation.The artwork is also very good. At first the style seemed a bit simplistic but it quickly grew on me. There was wonderful use of colour, down to the very borders matching the tone of the story. There was also wonderful almost photographic depictions of the different locations. The footnotes at the end highlighting the historical facts based on the events were very useful. I would highly recommend this to people who were interested in this history of the movement as well as younger girls and teenagers.

    When you think 'graphic novel' you imagine something frivolous and a bit silly, rather like the 'Beano' If that's the case, you couldn't be more wrong. This is an excellent account of one woman's life during the early part of the 20th century, when women were treated as brainless creatures to be used and abused and certainly not worthy of having the privilege of voting. In a way, it was a bit like watching a film because of all the illustrations and was a very quick read, but there was so much in it. Most of the illustrations were in black and white, so when Sally came into it with her bright orange hair, she really stood out. Bits of colour here and there grabbed my attention, but really, it was the story - all the horrors that went along with these brave women fighting for suffrage. The force-feeding I found particularly gruesome. The ending is a extremely strong and gives you something to think about. Entertaining as well as educational, I'd go so far as to say this ought to be on the list of books for GCSE and certainly worth reading for anyone wanting to know more about the suffragette movement. I still prefer an actual novel, which is why I gave this 4 stars instead of 5, but to be fair, graphic novels are in a genre of their own. If I was comparing it to some other graphic novel, I'd probably give it 5 stars.

    I really enjoyed this story, which gave me several facts I didn't know about concerning the suffragette movement. Then I realised Sally Heathcote was a fictional character and I was left feeling confused about what was fact or fiction. In fact I hated this device and didn't understand why the story couldn't have been told based on a real person, or several real people, which I thought would have made a more powerful story. The art work was okay, but not of the same quality as Mary Talbot's previous book, where her husband completed the drawings. I had high expectations of this, but was left somewhat disappointed.

    Un gran relato sobre la lucha de las mujeres por la dignidad y la libertad, que pasaron verdaderas calamidades por buscar el voto femenino en un mundo de imposición masculina cuyos vestigios por desgracia se mantienen aún hoy en muchos casos. La última viñeta se te clava en el corazón y te hace pensar sobre cuánto lucharon nuestros mayores por dejarnos un mundo mejor y que nunca se lo agradecemos lo suficiente. El recurso del dibujo a blanco y negro pero utilizar color para ciertos momentos, como las pancartas y los colores de las asociaciones sufragistas, así como el pelo pelirrojo de la protagonista, que le da mucha personalidad y refleja su carácter intrépido, es todo un acierto.

    The last three pages completely shattered my heart - especially the last frame. Please always use your vote when you can, your opinions and beliefs are so important not only to your current society but also to honouring history. I think that this could've been slightly better done - although I understood the timeline it still felt a bit jumpy and some things were definitely not explained as well as they could have been. My understanding of the Suffragettes from GCSE History most definitely contributed to me enjoying this.

    This was a wonderful graphic novel to give you a feel of the history. The art style was fascinating and captured the atmosphere of the time period perfectly. The ending was especially good. The last line hits like a punch to the gut, and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it. It is definitely a good work for getting upset about what people went through to get us to where we are today.My only real complaint is that the pacing was a bit hard. I often just wanted a bit more let in on what was happening, and it skipped frequently and at times confusingly.

    Didn't love the graphic identity, but it's an intense and, at the end, really moving comic, with lots of unobtrusive nonfictional elements throughout the story that are then pulled together in a set of great informative pages at the end. The story itself is typical 'political Bildungsroman', but with a very interesting set of secondary characters. The ending is sad and beautiful, rousing in its apparent hopelessness.
