School Library Journal Review

Gr 9 Up-Primary-source documents give a history of the topic, from "The Movement Begins" to "The Nineteenth Amendment." Each one is summarized in the table of contents. While excerpts from the writings of familiar participants like Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Frances D. Gage, Susan B. Anthony, Alice Stone Blackwell, and Sojourner Truth are included, it is the documents from the Supreme Court and the Congressional Record that round out the picture. The eloquent words of men in leadership positions who recognized the equality of women are offered alongside those who wished to perpetuate the myth that women were delicate, fragile creatures incapable of any activity other than caring for a home and family. A few average-quality black-and-white photos are scattered throughout. This concise volume could be paired with Doris Weatherford's fine presentation in A History of the American Suffragist Movement (ABC-CLIO, 1998) and Brenda Stalcup's Women's Suffrage (Greenhaven, 2000). Libraries that own Elizabeth Frost and Kathryn Cullen-DuPont's Women's Suffrage in America (Facts On File, 1992) may consider it an additional purchase.-Joanne K.
