Image: Women's Suffrage: Giving the Right to Vote to All Americans (Progressive Movement 1900-1920 Set 2), by Jennifer Macbain-Stephens (Author). Publisher: Rosen Pub Group (September 30, 2006)
Women March For Suffrage in New York City
-- Over 25,000 women marched up Fifth Avenue in New York City to advocate for women's suffrage. The fight had been ongoing for more than 65 years, with the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848 first passing a resolution in favor of women's suffrage. Sadly, they wouldn't find success for another five years. The New York Times warned if women got the vote, it would play havoc for themselves and society, and granted the suffrage, women would demand all the rights implied. It is impossible to think of women as soldiers and sailors, police patrolmen, or firemen.

Read: Women's Suffrage: Giving the Right to Vote to All Americans
-- Although the U.S. Constitution was ratified in 1788, it wasn't until 1920 women were finally given the right to vote. Using primary source information integrated with at-level text and photographs with explanatory captions, MacBain-Stephens traces the struggles and campaigns of the suffrage movement through the pioneering work and determination of leaders such as Susan B. Anthony, Lucretia Mott, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Thanks to the efforts of the suffragists, women not only can vote but have also held public office on the local, state, and national levels.
