In 1870 a mesmerising psychic named Victoria Woodhull shattered tradition by running for the White House. Had she won the ensuing spectacle would surely have rivalled even that of our own era. Abhorring such flamboyance, Mary Wollstonecraft inspired a revolution of thought with her pen as she issued women’s first manifesto – still to be fulfilled.

These six women had no time for what society said they could and could not do. They would see the world bend before they did. From Aimee Semple McPherson, the first female preacher in America, to Coco Chanel, designer of an empire, they became the change they wanted to see. With great verve, wit and reverence, Jeremy Scott pays tribute to them.

The women who dared are: Victoria Woodhull, Mary Wollstonecraft, Aimee Semple McPherson, Edwina Mountbatten, Margaret Argyll and Coco Chanel.

To Break All the Rules

‘All this talk of women’s rights is moonshine. Women have every right. They have only to exercise them. That’s what we’re doing…’
