Some brief overview of book

Suffragists often endured ridicule, vitriol, and violence as they sought full citizenship. These women, and the men who supported them, demonstrated a deeply rooted commitment to their cause over the course of many decades of effort spent for discouraging results, and in spite of the dangers faced in undertaking political protest. Votes for Women! provides an updated consideration of the questions raised by the mass movement to gain equality and access to power in our democracy.

It interprets the campaigns for woman suffrage from the 1830s until 1920, analyzes the impact of the 19th amendment, and presents primary documents to allow a glimpse into the minds of those who campaigned for and against woman suffrage. The book's examination of the 70-year woman suffrage campaign movement shows how the movement faced enormous barriers, was perceived as threatening the very core of accepted beliefs, and was a struggle that showcased the efforts of strong protagonists and brilliant organizers who were intellectually innovative and yet were reflective of the great divides of race, ethnicity, religion, economics, and region existing across the nation. Included within the narrative section are biographies of significant personalities in the movement, such as militant Alice Paul and anti-suffragist Ida Tarbell as well as more commonly known leaders Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B.
