Henrietta's book tells the stories of the women who created the Women’s Engineering Society in 1919 - from their success of a social revolution to their significant achievements in engineering and technology.

In this fascinating book, Henrietta brings the era to life, from the moment when women in Britain were allowed to vote for the first time and to stand for Parliament, she draws our attention to the changing attitudes to women's rights, both in society and in the workplace.
