Elizabeth Cady Stanton believed this to be the most important speech of
her lifetime. With gorgeous and direct language, she presents a
compassionate appeal for human equality and dignity, and she addresses
the place of solitude in the lives of women and men.
Written in a
lively and dramatic style, Winning the Vote tracks the suffrage
movement from its true roots, in a handful of women who spoke up for
their rights, to its formal organization during the fight against
slavery and the bitter, divisive battle that resulted in the 19th
amendment, ratified in 1920. This 496-page volume book was researched and written by Robert PJ Cooney, Jr.
in collaboration with the National Women's History Project.
