   schema:reviewBody ""The stars of this book are many and varied, from writers, artists, film stars and entertainers, to designers, engineers, astronomers and scientists, and from gardeners, cooks, hostesses and governesses, to travellers, explorers, campaigners and politicians, to name but a few. The book brims over with the most famous names from 300 years of women's history, including Isabella Beeton, Nancy Astor, Lillie Langtry, Emmeline Pankhurst, Jane Austen, Beatrice Webb, Lady Anne Clifford, Annie Besant, Mary Wollstonecraft, Gertrude Jekyll, Beatrix Potter, Celia Fiennes and Amy Johnson; but there were many others quietly earning a living, working on behalf of the less fortunate or actively campaigning against social injustice, who have, until now, been hidden from history." "Illustrated and beautifully presented, Coming Out of the Kitchen is the perfect celebration of three centuries of women's achievement, redressing the balance with more traditional history and scuppering for good the notion that the role of women began and ended with marriage. It will be essential reading for women, and men, everywhere."--Jacket." ;
