Description

"Lively . . . Defiant . . . Pulling back the curtain on 100 years of struggle . . . The women who shaped the American narrative come to life with refreshing attention to detail."
--The New York Times Book Review

"Young readers will find fascinating, still-relevant lessons about power, persuasion and politics."
--The Washington Post

"[Votes for Women] gives hope that, no matter how broken the system, no matter much our beliefs seem to divide us, change can happen."
--Chicago Tribune

"This is an absorbing read for feminists, as well as readers who love learning about the history of women. I found it particularly fascinating how many other movements were happening at the same time as the suffrage movement -- and certainly, it's hard not to see those social movements as still relevant today."
--Book Riot

"This is a fascinating account of the bumpy road to women's suffrage in the U.S. . . . Well-chosen black-and-white archival reproductions and photographs ably support the text, which makes excellent use of primary sources, including excerpts from letters and writings to bring key personalities to life."
--The Horn Book Magazine, starred review

"From the first Women's Rights Convention in Seneca Falls in 1848 to the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920, this is a commanding and relevant account of sweeping, hard-won social reform and action."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Spanning multiple centuries, this work may be the most comprehensive account for young readers about the founders, leaders, organizers, and opponents of the American suffragist movement . . . Conkling delivers a tour de force."
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Looking for a comprehensive, well-written history of women's fight for the right to vote? You've found it. Conkling draws readers in . . . this is great for research as well as a good read."
--Booklist


"The intense drama of the 72-year battle for women's suffrage springs vividly to life from the pages of this compulsively readable account."
--School Library Journal

"Votes for Women! details the arduous struggle for women's suffrage in America with compelling biographical profiles of some of the movement's key figures . . . Through letters, journals, biographies, photographs, and newspaper accounts, the efforts of the known and unknown women who took up the cause of suffrage are vividly storied."
--Foreword Reviews

"With a strong storytelling voice, Winifred Conkling offers readers a captivating account of the long-fought battle for women's suffrage in the United States . . .Votes for Women! is an important, inspiring, and timely book."
--International Literacy Association
