9780810853720: The Suffragists in Literature for Youth: The Fight for the Vote (Literature for Youth Series)

Shunned and ridiculed by family, friends, and society. Arrested and imprisoned under the worst conditions imaginable. Their struggle lasted seventy-two years, but the right to vote was too precious to let slip away. They were true American heroes―the suffragists. Focusing on the American suffrage movement and its leaders from its beginnings in 1848, when the first Woman's Rights Convention was held in Seneca Falls, New York, to 1920, when the 19th Amendment was finally ratified and women gained the vote, this book provides a wealth of resources on the woman's suffrage movement.

Written for teachers, librarians, students, and researchers, The Suffragists in Literature for Youth: The Fight for the Vote offers a comprehensive guide to the available literature on woman's suffrage. Brief biographies of the most prominent figures in the American suffrage movement precede the list of resources―print, non-print, and electronic―for that individual. Resources are annotated, arranged by format, and listed by age group. They include fiction and non-fiction books, media, web sites, organizations, and also, ideas for implementing this important information into the curriculum. Information on woman's suffrage efforts in other countries, such as Great Britain, is also included, as are connections to related materials on voting and the Constitution. Whether for library collection development or simple browsing, authors Shelley Mosley and John Charles have composed the ideal book for finding information on the suffragists.

From the Publisher:

"...this book is an ideal resource for finding information on suffragists."

From the Author:

Imagine. In 1848, a group of women and their male supporters gather in Seneca Falls, New York, for a woman's rights convention, the first of its kind. They are a committed group, firm in their belief that women should control their own property. And some of those present actually believe that women be given the right to vote, a radical concept, even for this group.

The women, many of them mothers trying to raise their own families, work tirelessly to meet their goals. The property laws are changed twelve years later, in 1860. But the vote is still a long time coming.

The suffragists, as they come to be called, commit their lives to meet this end. One year passes after the New York property laws are changed. Two years. Five. By now, most people would have given up. But not these stalwart souls. Ten years pass. Twenty-five. Fifty. And still no vote. They keep fighting, although most of the original group have died by now.

In the meantime, a new breed of suffragists arises, women who are willing to face imprisonment and even put their own lives on the line. Seventy-two years have gone by since the Seneca Falls Convention.

At long last, in 1920, the 19th Amendment passes, and most women are finally given the right to vote in the United States. Only one woman from that first gathering in Seneca Falls, Charlotte Woodward, now ninety-one-years-old, lives to see the dream realized.

However, even with the passage of the 19th Amendment, not all women have the right to vote. Native Americans must wait four more years, not getting enfranchised until 1924. Women between the ages of eighteen and twenty-one win the vote in 1971.

This amazing, inspiring tale of courage, perseverance, and determination is one that every American, male and female, should know.
