Summary:
This volume covers American authors--both women and men--who participated in the movement for the women's vote. The lives and works of the authors included span the whole of the struggle, from before the first women's-rights convention in July 1848 at Seneca Falls, New York, through and beyond the ratification in August 1920 of the Nineteenth Amendment, which states that the right of U.S. citizens to vote shall not be denied on account of gender.
