Overview

Women Winning the Right to Vote in United States History by Carol Rust Nash

In March 1919, two hundred policemen brutally put down a protest march in New York City, clubbing, beating, and trampling the marchers. The protest was not a violent uprising. The marchers were women, and it was just one incident in a long battle American women had fought to gain the right to vote. In Women Winning the Right to Vote in United States History, author Carol Rust Nash explores the lives of the extraordinary people and the events involved in the seventy-two-year-long straggle to achieve women's political equality in the United States of America.
