A MAD, WICKED FOLLY giveaway in honor of the movie SUFFRAGETTE. It’s easy. Post a comment to enter!

Hi All,

Did you all get a chance to see the exquisite Carey Mulligan on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night? She’s plays the main character, Maude, in the film Suffragette and spoke with Stephen about suffrage and how hard women fought for the vote.  They showed a clip of Maude telling a man why they have to fight so hard, and it brought tears to my eyes.  I cannot wait to see this film, and I wish I could round up all of of you to see it with me.  Because I can’t do that, I thought I’d have a little giveaway instead.  Leave a comment for me about what you’re looking forward to seeing in the film or whatever moves you to say.  I’ll randomly choose a winner (or two) to receive a copy of A MAD, WICKED FOLLY and some swag.

I had the great fortune of meeting with my friend Helen Pankhurst (Sylvia Pankhurst’s granddaughter) when I was in England in July (she’s an extra as well as one of the expert sources) and she told me all about filming the movie and seeing her family come to life on the set.

So leave me a comment below and I’ll choose a winner on October 27th, which also happens to be my birthday!

Here’s a clip from the movie.  I def you not to cry through the entire thing!

  1. Wish we lived closer so I could see the movie with you, Sharon! A Mad, Wicked Folly will be a great complement to the movie. No need to enter me in the give-away. I already have my autographed copy. 🙂

  2. You are a amazing author, Sharon!

    For a girl like myself who was born in the late 20th century, and grew up in this era of the 21st century, it’s hard to believe just about one century ago, women were not allowed to vote while it’s a right that I was born with. This film is filled with inspiring women delivering a reminder of the struggles, pain and sacrifice made by women to get get the right to vote.

    I’m looking forward to these amazing actress’ work in presenting this story, the fashion of that time period and Meryl Streep of course. 🙂

    By the way, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

  6. I’d love to see it and see if I can compare anything to A MAD, WICKED FOLLY, which I LOVED. Thanks so much for the giveaway! I have the ARC and hardcover of AMWF, but not the new paperback!

  7. I Haven’t read it, but i must have it!

  8. I’m just so excited to see this fantastic cast portraying this important and pivotal moment for women. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Looking forward to seeing this film today as a feminist. It is wonderful to see how far we have come and be inspired to continue to fight for equality. The film has been highly recommended to me by my friend who is proudly related to a suffragette and plans to name her daughter after her inspiring relative.

    I look foward to seeing SUFRAGETTE because, ever since I learned of the movement, I’ve become really interested in its history. Also, I love Mulligan’s and Streep’s acting. They are two of my favorite actresses.

    The movie looks very empowering! I wish there were more movies like it. I hope you love it when you go see it 😀

    I actually just bought a copy of A Mad, Wicked Folly (can’t wait for it to get to me!) so I’m not entering the giveaway 🙂

    And HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! *throws confetti*

  12. There are so many things I’m looking forward to! Really, the entire movie; it looks SO great. The trailer was incredibly inspirational. I may have been tearing up at the end… I can’t wait to see Meryl Streep do an awesome speech as well!

  13. HI! I hope I’m not to late for this giveaway! You are amazing!
