For nearly 150 years, American women did not have the right to vote. On August 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified at last and they finally won that right. To achieve that victory, some of the fiercest, most passionate women in history marched, protested, and sometimes even broke the law, for more than eight decades. From Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, who founded the suffrage movement at the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention, to Sojourner Truth and her famous “Ain’t I a Woman?” speech, to Alice Paul, arrested and force-fed in prison, this is the story of the American women’s suffrage movement and the private lives that fueled its leaders’ dedication. All at once illuminating, harrowing, and empowering, Votes for Women! paints a vibrant picture of the women whose tireless battle still inspires political, human rights, and social justice activism. Age range is 13 to 18 years old, grades 8-12. Paperback, 320 pages.
