Women in Battle
Kvinner i kamp. 150 års kamp for frihet, likhet og søsterskap

A woman’s father would make her decisions until she was married. Then her husband would take over.

This changed when women began to organize. In this book writer Marta Breen and illustrator Jenny Jordahl tells the story about the women’s movements many dramatic battles.
