Overview

Winning the Vote for Women helps readers imagine what it was like to actually be in the United States at the passing of the 19th Amendment in 1919.

Blended with stunning photographs and lively artwork, the book includes step-by-step details of events leading up to passing of the historic Amendment, how women had campaigned (and won) in other countries including Britain, eyewitness accounts of the suffragettes and their harsh treatment by the authorities, and features on the women and men who helped change history.
