Praise

“In her new book, The Women’s Suffrage Movement, the historian Sally Roesch Wagner aims to finally give a voice to the women history forgot.” 
—The New York Times

“A fascinating new anthology.”
Casey Cep, The New Yorker

“Abundantly useful for aspiring scholars, while those with a casual interest in the subject will be struck by its surprising complexity.”
—Kirkus

“In advance of the centennial of the 19th Amendment, Wagner shakes up the narrative about the women who made it possible […] Her effort to correct the record is riveting; she empowers readers to remember and learn from the stories of their fierce foremothers.”
—Ms. magazine 

“Comprehensive anthology — complete with a foreword from our generation’s most prominent feminist, Gloria Steinem.”
—InStyle magazine

“Editor of this […] intersectional anthology, Sally Roesch Wagner, highlights some monumental moments and untold stories from history that paved the way for women to hit the polls.”
—Forbes

“An essential volume.”
—Library Journal
, starred review

“An important new anthology … The variety of perspectives and backgrounds represented in the volume is extraordinary … Capturing the spirit and purpose of a pivotal period in American history, this stirring collection honors the forward-thinking women who fought hard to win the vote.”
—BookPage


“The most comprehensive intersectional anthology of writing about the women’s suffrage movement published to-date… Not only does The Women’s Suffrage Movement expose readers to the long-neglected intersectional history of women’s rights in America—celebrating the activism and writing of not just these Indigenous women, but women of a wide diversity of races and classes—it also serves as a reminder to readers that political gains once won can be lost, that rights and freedoms once enjoyed can be swiftly taken away if we stop paying attention.”
—Bustle
