Century of Struggle: The Woman's Rights Movement in the United States

Century of Struggle: The Woman's Rights Movement in the United States Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The book you are about to read tells the story of one of the great social movements in American history. The struggle for women's voting rights was one of the longest, most successful, and in some respects most radical challenges ever posed to the American system of electoral politics...It is difficult to imagine now a time when women were largely removed by custom, practice, and law from the formal political rights and responsibilities that supported and sustained the nation's young democracy...For sheer drama the suffrage movement has few equals in modern American political history.

--From the Preface by Ellen Fitzpatrick
