The Woman in the Photograph : The thought-provoking feminist novel everyone is talking about Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


An empowering, thought-provoking feminist novel that will change the way you see the world.

Perfect for fans of Elizabeth Day, Claire Fuller and Joanna Cannon. 1968. Veronica Moon, a junior photographer for a local newspaper, is frustrated by her (male) colleagues' failure to take her seriously. And then she meets Leonie on the picket line of the Ford factory at Dagenham.

So begins a tumultuous, passionate and intoxicating friendship.

Leonie is ahead of her time and fighting for women's equality with everything she has.

She offers Veronica an exciting, free life at the dawn of a great change. Fifty years later, Leonie is gone, and Veronica leads a reclusive life.

Her groundbreaking career was cut short by one of the most famous photographs of the twentieth century. Now, that controversial picture hangs as the centrepiece of a new feminist exhibition curated by Leonie's niece.

Long-repressed memories of Veronica's extraordinary life begin to stir.

It's time to break her silence, and step back into the light.
