Reviews

An enlightening, high-quality narrative history of a woman and her work as a leader of American feminism. --School Library Journal, starred review

Praise for Votes for Women!:

Almost a century after women's right to vote was secured, Conkling delivers a tour de force--fairly neutral, at times infuriating, occasionally graphic, and reminiscent of disturbing news today. --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

This is a fascinating account of the bumpy road to women's suffrage in the U.S. ... Well-chosen black-and-white archival reproductions and photographs ably support the text, which makes excellent use of primary sources, including excerpts from letters and writings to bring key personalities to life. --The Horn Book, starred review

This comprehensive history chronicles the almost-80-year battle for women's suffrage. Conkling (Radioactive!) effectively sketches the complex personalities of the women who fought for women's right to vote, beginning with Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony and including subsequent leaders Carrie Chapman Catt and the more radical Alice Paul. ... A commanding and relevant account of sweeping, hard-won social reform and action. --Publishers Weekly, starred review
