9780674106536: Century of Struggle: The Woman's Rights Movement in the United States, Enlarged Edition

Century of Struggle tells the story of one of the great social movements in American history. The struggle for women’s voting rights was one of the longest, most successful, and in some respects most radical challenges ever posed to the American system of electoral politics.

“The book you are about to read tells the story of one of the great social movements in American history. The struggle for women’s voting rights was one of the longest, most successful, and in some respects most radical challenges ever posed to the American system of electoral politics... It is difficult to imagine now a time when women were largely removed by custom, practice, and law from the formal political rights and responsibilities that supported and sustained the nation’s young democracy... For sheer drama the suffrage movement has few equals in modern American political history.”―From the Preface by Ellen Fitzpatrick

About the Author:

Eleanor Flexner (1908–1995), a writer, also wrote American Playwrights: 1918–1938 and Mary Wollstonecraft.

Review:

Miss Flexner’s well-documented text is brightened by vignettes of...stout and colorful personalities... Her book has depth and amplitude. (New York Times Book Review)

Never before...has a book done more to relate the women’s rights movement in the United States to the centuries-old struggle of the individual to attain his (or her) full stature in society. Woman’s fight for the franchise is here presented, not as a separate shred torn from history, but as part of the warp and woof of national progress... Miss Flexner admirably refrains from idealizing her subjects, rightly judging that the facts need no gilding to show in true proportions the stature of these valiant women. (Christian Science Monitor)

A book to be read by every student in this country... This account will help us to maintain a truer image of ourselves as we try to finish up the struggle first launched so long ago. (Betty Friedan)
