 About the Book 

An important contribution to the history of women and the intellectual history of the United States. —Carl N. Degler, Stanford University What united and moved millions of women to seek a right that their society denied them? What were their beliefs about the nature of the home, marriage, sex, politics, religion, immigrants, blacks, labor, the state? In this book, Aileen S. Kraditor selects a group of suffragist leaders and investigates their thinking—the ideas, and tactics, with which they battled the ideas and institutions impeding what suffragists defined as progress toward the equality of the sexes. She also examines what the American public believed suffragism to mean and how the major events of the time affected the movement.
