Summary
They forever changed America: Lucy Stone, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Frances Willard, Alice Paul. At their revolution's start in the 1840s, a woman's right to speak in public was questioned. By its conclusion in 1920, the victory in woman's suffrage had also encompassed the most fundamental rights of citizenship: the right to control wages, hold property, to contract, to sue, to testify in court. Their struggle was confrontational (women were the first to picket the White House for a political cause) and violent (women were arrested, jailed, and force-fed in prisons). And like every revolutionary before them, their struggle was personal
Summary
Presents an overview of the period between the 1840s and the 1920s that saw numerous victories for women's rights, focusing on Lucy Stone, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Alice Paul as the activists who made these changes possible
