"Winning the Vote: The Triumph of the American Woman Suffrage Movement" captures the color and excitement of a central, inspiring, but largely unknown chapter in American history. This beautifully designed clothbound book presents the woman suffrage movement clearly and chronologically, with emphasis on the remarkable personalities and turbulent political campaigns of the early 20th century.

Over 960 photographs, posters, and leaflets, cartoons, campaign buttons and more illustrate the movement's fascinating 72-year history. Large format photographs and a fast paced text highlight key developments starting in 1848, but particularly between 1910 and 1920, including over 50 state electoral campaigns and the final controversial drive for the 19th amendment, ratified in 1920.

"Winning the Vote" shows how women have long been active participants in American history, and how they became politically powerful even without the vote. There are profiles of 78 individual American women and men who led the drive for equal rights. The opening 3 chapters, out of 18, cover efforts in the 19th century, while the rest focus on the early 20th century. An Epilogue follows suffragists into government and other influential areas after 1920.

Clothbound, 496 pages, 960 color & b/w photographs & illustrations, 2005.
