Each covers a major theme, such as slavery and suffrage, women overseas, women of Seneca Falls, divorce and reform, civil wars, and defeats, and each is introduced with a discussion of the historical context of the primary documents presented and a chronology of events. Also included are capsule biographies of more than 80 important figures, maps showing which states extended suffrage to women during different periods, and 116 b&w photographs.
