Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

American women have been able to vote for less than 100 years. Title IX of the Education Amendments and Roe v. Wade are not yet 40. The first bill President Obama signed into law dealt with equal pay for women. Meanwhile, Title IX remains a work in progress, Roe v. Wade is under fire, and women still earn 77 cents to a man’s dollar. This inspiring, thought-provoking collection spotlights the early suffragists, unsung heroes, and prime movers behind the modern movement and considers the future of women’s rights in America and the world.

Featuring:
  • Gloria Steinem on 25 Years of Ms. Magazine
  • Victoria Woodhull: The First Woman to Run for President—in 1872
  • Margaret Sanger: The Pill Turns 50
  • Shirley Chisholm: Portrait of a Pioneer
  • For Elizabeth Cady Stanton, All Women Were Not Created Equal
  • Remembering Bella Abzug • Susan B. Anthony’s Pioneering Vote
  • and much more.

    Synopsis:

    NPR explores the issues, struggles, and triumphs of the American women’s movement, from the early pioneers to the leaders of today who fight to preserve hard-won rights.
