"A remarkable tale... This book should be required reading until Alice Paul becomes a household name. She not only fought for voting rights and the 19th Amendment; she kept fighting for another 50 years."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"While this book brings to life one of the most important stories of the 20th century, Mr. President is essential reading for today, showing us what it takes to lead a movement, create positive change, and force government to be accountable to the people. It's an inspiring reminder of what one committed person can do." -- Keith O'Brien, author of the New York Times Bestselling Fly Girls: How Five Daring Women Defied All Odds and Made Aviation History-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"Compact and energetic. . . .A double portrait of Woodrow Wilson, the Democratic president whose opposition to suffrage gave way to half-hearted support, and Alice Paul, the single-minded young Quaker who brought to America the radical tactics she learned from the British suffragettes." -Wall Street Journal-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"Appearing as we approach the 2020 centennial of the amendment's ratification, this book is especially timely, filled as it is with inspiration and practical lessons for activists, including recognition of the value of groups working separately for the same goal. Cassidy...also draws us into the unstoppable power of a movement." - Ms. Magazine-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"General readers will appreciate this treatment of the efforts of [Alice] Paul, a heroine of the women's rights movement." -Library Journal-- "Kirkus Reviews"
