Temperance and Woman Suffrage were about much more than prohibition and the vote; they were powerful early expressions of what has become the continuing concern of the women's movement for the social well-being of children and families and for the right of women to the same opportunities as men. In this first book to assess the combined influence of temperance and suffrage on woman's evolving role in American society, sociologist Janet Zollinger Giele argues that the two movements together accomplished much more than either could have done alone. Giele traces the history of temperance and suffrage to women's involvement in missionary work, moral reform, and abolition between the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. Her intensive study of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union, founded in 1874, reveals what many will find to be its surprisingly wide scope of social concerns. The temperance women, often thought of in caricature as priggish, narrow-minded souls who abhorred alcohol, were largely motivated by the desire to eliminate the ill health, poverty, violence against women and children, and broken homes that resulted from its abuse. Giele's study of the suffrage movement chronicles its evolution from the small gathering in Seneca Falls, New York, in 1848 through the dramatic division of its ranks following the Civil War to its reunification near the turn of the century and finally to its ultimate victory with the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920. Giele's analysis is informed by her search of the leading temperance and suffrage newspapers for a view of each group's concerns unfiltered by time and second opinions; she also surveys the life histories of dozens of temperance andsuffrage leaders to discern the common experiences that likely led them to their cause. Her study of each movement covers its ideology, organizational development, and tactical strategies. "The temperance and suffrage movements illustrate three important points for modern-day feminis
