The women's suffrage movement began around 1800 and culminated in 1920 with the19th Amendment, giving women the right to vote. This book offers hundreds of firsthand accounts of the women's movement - diary entries, letters, speeches, and newspaper accounts - that illustrate how historical events appeared to those who lived through them.

Grade 9 Up–What was great about the first edition (1992) remains strong and fiercely alive in this one: firsthand accounts of women desperate to find their freedom and selections such as an earthy yet powerful speech from Sojourner Truth. Though this edition has lost some of the spice of the original, it makes up for that loss by adding approximately 50 pages that include new images, maps, letters, and revised introductions, and an easier-to-read layout. Thirteen chapters cover the years 1800-1920; each one begins with historical narrative followed by a Chronicle of Events and excerpts from books, letters, news articles, speeches, resolutions, and more. There are quibbles: the index could be more helpful (the sole entry for court decisions leads readers to the preface describing material added to this edition); occasionally the pictures don't illuminate the text on the page; and some early passages dealing with women finding purpose and satisfaction in their domestic life and offering another point of view have been dropped. Libraries owning Kathryn Cullen-Dupont's The Encyclopedia of Women's History in America (Facts On File, 2000) may not find this an essential purchase, but quibbles aside, this updated work remains a necessary addition to every high school collection.–Herman Sutter, Saint Agnes Academy, Houston, TX
